I put together this salad for a picnic in Prospect Park this weekend. It was such a hit with my group that I thought I would post the recipe. I love this salad this time of year as all the ingredients are in season. I think the key to this salad is the addition of herbs, like parsley and thyme, which give it a strong fresh taste. A good quality extra virgin olive oil is nice too (cold filtered, unrefined). Look for these ingredients at your local farmers market! It is also important to remember this is only a salad. So feel free to deviate from the measurements listed. You can't do wrong with a few more cherry tomatoes or olives. Make it your own creation!
