Few things compliment those endless summer nights, and barbecued proteins, like a freshly-diced salad. Made of fresh ingredients and flavored by a zesty vinaigrette, this beautiful, light side dish is easy on the eyes, and on the prep time.

Keep this salad in your summer rotation and pair with seasonal, light entrees like Chef Irvine's Grilled Mahi Mahi sandwich.
