Tomato Basil Rainbow Salad (Paleo)

Summer has an abundance of local vegetables! I really enjoy going to the farmers market and finding fresh tomatoes, peppers, corn, cucumbers and all that it has to offer!

This salad is easy to whip up since I have basil growing in my garden(The bunny rabbits don’t seem to like it. Their lose, my gain.) Don’t tell the bunnies how good it is… :)

This is such an easy salad to make if you get unexpected company or just want to make something that looks so elegant. Just don’t tell anyone how easy it is to make!
