By Alicia Ghio

Summer produce is coming in strong from my garden and this salad is an easy way to enjoy it. No cooking, just a lot of chopping. I decided to use corn, zucchini, tomato and scallion, but you can easily add or substitute other vegetables, like cucumbers, bell peppers or even yellow squash. Or kick up…

As opposed to a regular smoothie that you drink with a straw, smoothie bowls are thicker, creamier and wonderfully pudding-like.
