I love the heat of the summer. After a day at work, I love to come home and relax by the pool with a white wine spritzer. When it is too hot to cook, I make a fabulous salad using leftovers and what ever I have in the fridge. It is a complete meal and everyone loves it as they can build their own salad.
I start with a large open bowl and fill it with mixed greens. Then I place all of the toppings around the edge so people can select what they like. Yesterday I made this salad with tomatoes, cucumber, red pepper, cheddar cheese, green olives, roasted soya beans, chopped ham, guacamole, and egg salad. I put out the dressing on the side to be added or not.
