This lovely Mediterranean Summer Salad is delicious, refreshing and very easy to make. You can always substitute this recipe’s veggies with other veggies to your liking. This delicious salad is wonderful by itself, but beautifully complemented with a glass of red wine.

Salad Ingredients: (serving size 6).

2 Cans Italian butter beans, drained and rinsed
1 Large fennel, washed and diced (remove exterior tough layers, use the tender parts only)
2 Medium zucchinis, washed and diced
2 Small watermelon radishes, pealed, washed and diced or a cup of diced radishes of any other kinds
1 Tbsp. Meyer lemon rinds
1/2 Cup green olives

Dressing Ingredients:

1 Cup dill, washed, drained and roughly chopped
2 Garlic cloves, pealed
1 Large Meyer lemon juice
1/3 Cup extra virgin olive oil
1 Tsp. cumin seeds
1/5 Tsp. sea salt

Instructions: Place all ingredients in a food processor and pulse a few time until mixed, but not too mushy, so when you pour it over the salad, you can taste and see each ingredient, pic 3

Salad Assembly:

Mix all ingredients in a bowl, pour salad dressing over or you can serve the dressing on the side. Lastly sprinkle Meyer lemon rinds on the salad as garnish, pics 2 and 3.

Optional: you can also add some crumbled feta cheese to make this salad even more delicious!

Enjoy!
