This Greek Salad is my little celebration with the fruits of summer! For tomato lovers, nothing beats this time of year with sun-warmed tomatoes right off the vine.

Grilling the pineapple caramelizes the edges, making a most delicious salsa! We have tons of cilantro in the garden right now, so we’re eating lots of Mexican inspired dishes. Really fresh cilantro has at least twice as much flavor, so I would encourage you to seek it out from a local farmers market or grow some in your flower beds if you don’t have a garden.
