Food never tasted so good, either. Sun-kissed and sweetly spent, nothing is as satisfying as an effortless salad tossed together from the garden or the farmer’s market.
This is one such salad recommended for a blissful day between the dock and the bonfire.

One quart of strawberries, sliced in to quarters
