The Perfect Summer Salad Take 2

Some people think that making a salad takes up a lot of prep time and so resort to making other quicker meals or worse, ordering in.

The key to making such prep-heavy meals is to prepare in bulk make in advance.  So for example, once a week I would cook enough brown rice and quinoa to last me throughout the week.  I also tend to buy washed and chopped greens (always local).  Cherry tomatoes for instance are so easy to prepare you just cut them in half and you're set!  Cucumbers can be prewashed and ready for chopping (I use a mandolin).  So you catch my drift - right?

Okay, so this is such a delicious salad and is refreshing  for a hot summer day.  Enjoy it as an appetizer or a meal on its own.
