Well, even if the weather isn't going to cooperate and play along with the date on the calendar it can't prevent us from enjoying spring and summery food, right?
We've been teased with a few warm days and sunny skies lately ~ but the background of drizzle and a gray cover overhead predominate. Unusual for us at this time of year, because normally our veggie garden would have been planted by now but the earth is simply too soggy to work.
While we're waiting to plant the veggie beds, a colorful salad brightens meal time and reminds us that summer weather isn't far off, even if spring seems to have passed us by this year.
The bonus is that this is really easy to assemble and you probably have everything you need to make it in your pantry;
new potatoes, artichoke hearts, olives (I used kalamata), feta cheese, capers, red onions, flat leaf parsley and a simple vinaigrette that is whisked together in moments.
You could also add tuna chunks, hard cooked eggs, or cooked chicken or shrimp to make it a salad meal if you wish. Make it ahead for fullest flavor, or enjoy it right after putting it together.
Best served "cool" or at room temperature, not right out of the fridge.
It's one of my favorites!
