Summer Vegetable Salad

This dish belongs at a garden party, where you’ll naturally be serving it while wearing all white.

It’s the perfect summer salad: light, crunchy, and colorful, with lots of fresh produce and seafood.

Plus, it includes common vegetables like cucumber, green beans, and tomatoes but also a few that are more rare, like artichokes and hearts of palm.

That means you’ll be able to impress at least a few guests at said party.

It also works as an easy, light summer dinner at home, but we always prefer a party.

WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE

Shrimp is a great source of protein and vitamin B12, a nutrient that many Americans are deficient in. And the rest of the dish is basically a colorful basket full of fresh veggies: tomato, radishes, artichokes, greens, green beans, tomatoes, avocado (okay, avocado is technically a fruit), and cucumber. Any recipe that packs in that much produce is a winner.
