Summer Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette

 Summer Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette
This refreshing recipe goes well with grilled fish or chicken. We enjoy the lemony dressing at room temperature, so I make it first and let it rest on the counter while I toss the salad together. —Julie Kirkpatrick, Billlings, Montana
