Tasty Early Summer Salad

Summertime brings with it lots of fresh local vegetables. We're lucky to be able to get local organic veggies each week from Heartbeet Organics (they have the most amazing salad green mixes).  If you check out their site, you can see all the great information they've put together about how to best store and serve the wide variety of vegetables they grow.  This salad was a delicious start to the summer - packed with fresh local veggies and an easy, tasty sauce.  We served it alongside baked salmon fillets with a dijon glaze (my herb-crusted salmon recipe here which is a similar type dish). Enjoy!
