Summer Salad

Thanks for yr comments on the last post, guys. I will try to respond to them all.
Threw a bunch of pretty much everything into a salad for dinner tonight. It was crunchy and fresh.


Spinach, roasted eggplant,chopped zucchini, carrot, cherry tomatoes, raw corn, tofu. With balsamic vinegar and black pepper.
More summer produce, nectarine:

  1. I love nectarines so much, but haven't been able to get many this year. The organic ones have been so expensive & rarely went on sale. The peaches have been terrific, though! Still, I'm jealous of your nectarine.

    Great looking salad. You're my inspiration when I make mine. :)

    1. I actually prefer nectarines to peaches because the fuzz does something weird to my mouth.. but they have all been really tasty this year for me.

    1. Yeah, so easy too. I probably could have even thrown the nectarine in too!

  3. I love summer fruit so much. They make the 80/10/10 diet seem almost doable lol. Your salads are always beautiful and I love how effortless it is for you to just throw them together and make perfect combinations. Yum!

  4. Yes, "everything salads" are great. I need to get some nectarines and/or peaches. I've been hesitant though because sometimes the quality is not what it could be, but I think it may be time to take the plunge since we are getting into the "season of mists and mellow fruitfulness."

    1. That's so beautiful! What is that quotation from? It's true, every fruit is really at its prime these months.

  6. I haven't had any nectarines this year, thanks for the reminder. :) I need to get over my suspicion of eggplant; it looks nice in your salad. Hope the move goes well!

    1. Eggplant can be weird but I find it pretty fun to eat. Baba ganoush is a good starter recipe!

  10. Summer's coming to an end over here in England - I'm going to be getting as many salads like that one down my neck before all the good veggies disappear!
