Summer Salad

A nice summer salad recipe from Sheila Greene . . . perfect for this season of abundant and very fresh salad veggies at the market.

Summer Salad
Chopped Tomatoes (varieties of your choice) I chose heirlooms for great taste and beautiful color
Chopped Onions ( I cut them in moon shape and then halved them
Chopped cucumbers ( I use 3 large)
1 chopped sweet banana pepper
You can just use the portions that you like of each ingredient. I always cut up my tomatoes first and salt them pretty good and set aside to let them make their own juice while I am chopping the other ingredients. Combine all the ingredients together.

For the dressing, I sprinkle Kraft Zesty Italian Dressing over the top. 
For a similar salad, Carol Schmidt uses a combination of Balsamic or red wine vinegar and olive oil, with a ratio of one part vinegar and two parts olive oil
