Summer is here!

Well actually it's not officially here until June 20 if you want to get technical, but summer weather is certainly here in NC.

There are days in the weekly forecast that are over 100°F and I'm very thankful for working air conditioning these days. I'm also getting ready to go on a tropical beach vacation so not only have I been eating healthy in preparation, I've been stocking up on all the beach and sun protection essentials.

This tomato salad is actually helping me with both those things because, FUN FACT: tomatoes have something called lycopene, and some studies have shown that lycopene can help protect your skin against daily sun damage.

But I'm pale and definitely still need sunscreen and all that jazz.

That might have something to do with why tomatoes are the featured superfood for May and June in the Sam's Club online magazine, Healthy Living Made Simple.

Not only can you get a variety of fresh tomatoes and other snacks from Sam's Club, you can also pick up that suncreen and other beach necessities.

Oh, and did you know you can also get a free health screening (at select stores) if you happen to stop-in on the second Saturday of each month? The June screening happens to be just two days from when I'm writing this, on June 11, 2016.

So it's pretty much a one-stop shop for your summer needs and whatever fun in the sun you're planning on having. And if you make this salad, it's a great thing to bring to the beach with you.

Just remember to pack a fork, because I've been known to forget.

My favorite thing in the garden is a sun ripened tomato. This looks good and I bet it will be fabulous with my home grown tomatoes
