A Bowl of Summer Crunch

By Momma Chef

This is a great recipe if you need a new, fun salad or want something yummy to bring over to a friend’s home. I dress this with a simple olive oil/balsamic vinegar mix and add silvered almonds on top for some crunch. Put the salad in a pretty bowl, and you have a beautiful and tasty dish. 

Karen Nochimowski, the mom behind, has loved cooking for as long as she can remember. After her friends and family begged to be let in on her culinary secrets, she decided to create a blog featuring the quick, easy recipes everyone loved. Every recipe has only six or fewer ingredients and takes only six or fewer minutes to prepare.
