“The Southeast” Summer Salad – “A Salad For Each Week” #33

Mint from my garden, mangoes from Merritt Island, peaches and grape tomatoes from the West North Carolina Farmer’s Market (our recent vacation spot), and a cucumber from Publix (I was “desperate” 😉 ) make this super refreshing salad. My girls loved this when I made it the other day while Scott and Joel were out and about. We often forget that eating fresh fruits and veggies are EXTREMELY hydrating and wonderful for our bodies from our skin to our vital organs.



“The Southeast” Summer Salad

2 cups cherry tomatoes, cut in half

1 large mango, sliced into bite-sized pieces

2 medium peaches, sliced into bite-sized pieces

1 medium cucumber, chopped

2 Tablespoons fresh mint, chopped

2 teaspoons clean oil (olive, seed or nut oil, or coconut oil)

2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar

Dash of Salt

Combine oil, vinegar, and salt in a large bowl. Whisk together. Add fruits and veggies and mint. Gently stir to evenly coat. I like to serve this almost immediately. If wanting to serve later, I like to add the mango and peaches in just before plating so the fruits (esp. the mango) don’t get too mushy.
