Notes

This recipe is for the small garden grower which includes myself. I know how exciting it is to see that first bright red tomato hanging on the vine soaking up the sun in all its glory. I am known for my seasonal simplistic approach when creating a dish. Each ingredient should shine and not over power the other. This salad says a lot with only a few ingredients; three came from my garden
