This is probably a no brainer but I've been using the amazing local produce I have been getting from my CSA and local farmer's market to make simple and delicious salads. My two favorites are currently a caprese salad with red and yellow tomatoes, or corn, grape tomato and cilantro salad. There really isn't a recipe for either of them. Just find ingredients you enjoy together and toss them with a little olive oil and maybe some kind of citrus and voilà!
