June on the east coast offers a bounty of salad greens and colorful vegetables. We took a trip to the farm market and picked up a selection of seasonal delights. We made this summer salad with a lemon olive oil dressing and served it for lunch with sliced Italian bread. 

The more colors you add to your salad, the more variety of nutrients you’re taking in to give you energy on these hot summer days. It makes for a very pretty plate too.
