In these hot humid days of August, nothing feels better than a light refreshing summer salad. We love this simple salad and the myriad of variations possible. Our favorite way with this citrus combo is over a bed of Boston or bib lettuce. The delicate texture and flavor do not overwhelm and anti up the hydration factor. Enjoy!
