Salads and summers !!

As the caption suggests  I am a lot into salads and why?  because there is no sign of end of summer other than apparel stores. Just that is not the reason well I love salads. I eat salad like salad, lunch, breakfast and dinner.
So here are few of my favorite ones which I eat often at my home sweet home.

Beat with a fork while  adding olive oil
How I made it
Chop all the veggies into bite size pieces and half the olives
Add the dressing just before serving.
