Uncle Joe’s Simple Salad

I love going to Long Island to visit family in the summer. And the food. I love the food. My sister Ali and brother-in-law Joe really embrace Long Island summers. Their house is in walking distance to the bay. They always have fresh fruit and vegetables growing in their garden and somehow there is always someone dropping off fresh fish and clams caught that day! Dinner usually includes fresh fish fillets and a simple salad.

Joe prepared this the other day with my nephew Joseph and this is a perfect example of my summers in Long Island. Uncle Joe’s Simple Salad takes a few minutes to prepare and will get you dreaming about simple summers…

BTW, Joe makes the best fresh cocktails. So stay tuned for drinks that will make the sun shine…

  1. Sounds like a great salad! And if I put it in the blender, it’d make an excellent gazpacho! 🙂
