"There is a fundamental reason why we look at the sky with wonder and longing—for the same reason that we stand, hour after hour, gazing at the distant swell of the open ocean. There is something like an ancient wisdom, encoded and tucked away in our DNA, that knows its point of origin as surely as a salmon knows its creek." -Neil DeGrasse Tyson
A lovely and light salad for a summer meal or sandwiches. You could easily vary the herbs that go in this salad, but fresh herbs will work better, especially a bit of thyme or oregano.
