Summer is here to stay for a while and also the abundance of fresh vegetables is finally here as well. Tonight the only meal that sounded good was salad. Yes, but not your conventional salad, rather a salad with a twist.
My mom just sent me from her beautiful garden some exquisite vine ripe tomatoes. She sent me and assortment of sized and shapes . The cute small cherry tomatoes have patiently been waiting for us to eat them since they have arrived.
Freezer door open and I pulled out some wonderful shrimps from Pete at Personal Gourmet. We also have some avocados that are perfect to be enjoyed. Therefore our summer salad was created in a flash.
Easy dinner with little time in the kitchen is perfect ending to a wonderful day.
Tonight recipe is for 2, and can multiplied as needed.
To all enjoy!!
