Hello Summer Salad Recipe (Summery Strawberry Cucumber Salad)

Hello Summer! The first day of summer is June 20th and that also marks the day of my mate Vince’s birthday! Happy birthday Vince and I hope you get spoiled.

We have an excessive heatwave here in northern California and living at 4,000 elevation with 100 degrees is no fun. I do not miss our 110 summer days in Fair Oaks, California. But we went for boba yesterday and the weather read 106 in Placerville. Thankfully we were in and out of the boba shop, which by the way any Placerville friends out there check this new place out called-  Teapost Boba on main street


This week is way too hot to cook anything more than a simple salad, which is not considered cooking. Rather it is a matter of dicing veg and then tossing it in a bowl and serve! Easy right?? Let’s get to this beautiful summery salad that includes some of my favorite seasonal produce.

  2. To prepare the salad dressing, add the ingredients to a bowl and whisk to combine.
