On a warm summer's evening, my cousin Annie put together this lukewarm summer salad and we enjoyed it in the last sunbeams of the day on her appartment's balcony. She served it with some ciabatta bread with garlic butter and tapenade on the side. I loved it, and absolutely needed to share this one here!
