Rainbow Salad Season

The height of summer means a rainbow of vegetables. I love the simplicity of beautiful, delicious vegetables from the garden or the farmers' market speaking for themselves. This carrot salad is so simple, but a few herbs from the garden a a squeeze of lemon are a delightful addition to the summer dinner table.
