This is the type of salad I wish was always prepped and waiting for me in the fridge. I love it!  It’s simple and flavorful and you can easily add other items like a grain or fresh mozzarella to make it even heartier. Also, it’s easily made ahead of time so it’s great for entertaining. The recipe is inspired by an Ottolenghi salad that was in Bon Appetit last summer.

This summer I am growing nasturtium flowers in pots for the first time, just for salads, and I’ve found them super easy to grow! And those vines you see are hops. I’m growing them mostly for decorative purposes since they grow super fast and will trail my string of lights in no time!

Happy summer cooking!
