Summer salad recipes

It turns out the Pinterest has it's uses, especially since launching a mobile app.  I've gotten into the habit of seeing something nice to eat, and pinning it while I'm surfing on my laptop, then loading it up on the tablet, which gets propped out of the way in the kitchen so I can try recipes out right away.  This generally involves a lot of running from one end of the kitchen to another, since the only safe place I have is the furthest point from the stove and bench, but anyway...

Because I've been using Pinterest as a cookbook lately, my actual cookbook (my work of art!) has been sitting in the bottom of the pantry with other neglected things (soda stream gas cannister, terrible bottles of white wine...).  I dug it out for something the other day, and now I'm in the mood to make it grow again.

I wish I knew where this recipe came from.  It's great for summer lunches.  The actual spread itself is a mix of images from Scrap Girls, and the spots are from a background designed by Ange Designs.  The font is called Annoyed Teenager, and is designed by Arianna Teague.

This is a bit of a cheat - it's just a background with text added.  The paper is from a kit by Sharon C, who shares the most amazing kits for free, and the font is called Designio, by Rodrigo German.
