Fresh Spring Salads

Inspired by my new client, who likes to have a stocked fridge of fresh vegetable salads, I have been making similar dishes at home.  I realized how quick, easy, and delicious they are and I don’t know why I hadn’t been making them before.

Perfect for a quick snack, ready-made lunch, or something to tide my husband over until dinner!

Here is what I tossed together this afternoon, while my kids played.  It only took me about 15 minutes for both salads.

Cucumber, Red Pepper, Tomato Salad

-1 cucumber, small dice

1/2  red bell pepper, small dice

couple handfuls of cherry tomatoes, halved

1 shallot, minced

couple sprigs of parsley, minced

olive oil

lemon juice

salt and pepper

Corn, Zucchini, and Red Pepper Saute

1 onion, small dice

1 ear of fresh corn, kernels removed

1 zucchini, small dice

1/2 red bell pepper, small dice

salt and pepper

Drizzle some olive oil in a skillet over medium high heat.  Add onion and cook until translucent.  Add rest of the veg and cook until colors brighten, 3-5 minutes.  Season and enjoy!
