You were right! This is a perfect summer meal! The flavor combination was wonderful. I served the fritters with honey mustard dipping sauce. Yum! Thanks chia!

This is a very colourful salad that would be nice at any dinner party, with just a few slight changes. I think the fritters definitely need a dipping sauce. They were light and fluffy, a wonderful texture, but a bit dry without any sauce to go along with them. I might also add some parmesan cheese to the salad. I just felt it needed one more thing to round it out.
