Chopped Israeli Salad

Chopped Israeli Salad

Summer is young and I can already tell it's going to be a hot one. I'm all skirts and tank tops during the week, and headed to the mountains for cooler air on the weekend. You know that saying "cool as a cucumber?" I think I know why they say that: when it's blazing hot outside, cucumbers are the best thing for cooling you down. 

Actually all of the flavors in this salad will cool you down: heirloom cherry tomatoes, freshly squeezed lemon juice, parsley, and crunchy radishes. 

Chopped Israeli Salad

When I make this salad I like to dice everything up small so that each bite can have a little bit of everything: a bit of cool cucumber, sweet tomato, and herby parsley... you get the picture. Perfect for barbecues, picnics, and really just any lunch in the sun.
