Dave and I recently stopped by the farmer’s market, and summer is truly my favorite time to go. I tend to get into a little trouble deciding what to buy because, truthfully, I want everything!
We settled on some fresh heirloom grape tomatoes, and from there I knew I wanted to make my favorite easy summer salad. We ended up finding everything for the salad at the farmer’s market too! Fresh tomatoes, cucumber, onion, and dill.
Even if you don’t have a farmer’s market near you, you’ll still be able to find everything you need easily at the grocery store.

I love make ahead salads like this one because it takes the pressure off of getting ready and worrying about what food I’ll have ready to go for guests or to bring with me to a potluck.
