The perfect quick, easy and healthy lunch!  Fresh organic baby arugula, tomatoes,  red onion and avocado.

I like to use the zest from a meyer lemon and the juice, sprinkle of salt and fresh pepper and a tiny drizzle, just a teaspoon of olive oil.

If you have never tasted a meyer lemon, it is nothing like a regular lemon.  It has a much more complex flavor, more aligned with a mandarin orange or tangerine, but sour.  It makes an OUTSTANDING salad dressing!

one of my favorite summer salads

i have been making this salad for years.  i truly love it.  very light and refreshing and perfect for summer-time BBQ’ing. takes just a few minutes.

cut kernels off of a 4 ears of corn, dice watermelon (about 1 cup), and slice cucumber into thin slices(1 english cucumber) … finely chop one bunch of fresh tarragon.

for the vinaigrette:  use about 1/4 cup white wine vinegar (or any other white vinegar you like) 1 tsp honey, 1 tsp mustard more fresh and dried tarragon, grated orange zest, about 1/4 c (more or less) of olive oil, salt and pepper.  you will not need to use all of this dressing, maybe half or less.  add just a bit of dressing to start and taste…

keep leftover dressing in fridge, great for salads, as a marinade for chicken or fish, or just drizzle on top of grilled chicken.
