Chopped Farmstand Salad

Lilly says Creativity is the keynote of this salad.  A trip to the farmer's market will reveal what's in season.  Just use this recipe as inspiration and buy whatever looks and tastes good!

1 med head romaine lettuce chopped into 1/2 in pieces
3 large ripe tomatoes, preferably a combo of different colors and varieties, seeded and cut into 1/2 dice
1-1/2 cups fresh corn kernels
1 med zucchini, cut into 1/4 in dice
1 med yellow squash, cut into 1/4 in dice
2 celery ribs, cut into 1/4 in dice
1/2 cup thinly sliced radishes
1 garlic clove, crushed
1/2 cup packed basil leaves
3 tbls red wine vinegar
1 cup extra virgin olive oil
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Mix lettuce, tomatoes, corn, zucchini, squash, celery, and radishes in large bowl.

With food processor or blender running, drop garlic and basil through and pulse until finely chopped.  With machine running, add vinegar, then oil.  Season with salt and pepper.  Pour over vegetables and toss well.
