Ok. I know I am jumping the gun here and that summer is still technically two months away. But I’m getting antsy. Classes are over in a few weeks, which basically means summer anyways, and the recent warm-spell in Ithaca that allowed me to wear shorts and a tank top in mid-April tells me that it is already summer (disregard the snow that also just happened).

So summer may be far off and I may just be delusional, but a girl can pretend, right? So can you with this super simple salad. It may not be summer quite yet, but this tasty and easy salad is never out of season.
