Mediterranean lunch

With every day summer is closer and closer, usually this part of year I can’t stop counting days before I’ll get the chance to jump in the sea and have a swim. I already did that close to a month ago and since returning back to Zagreb I can’t stop thinking of the clear blue sea, drinking beer on the patio and laying back in the sun. When at the seaside I’m in the summer state of mind, relaxing, enjoying every second and nothing’s better than having a light, easy-to-make lunch.

I’m sharing with you three simple salads, because simplicity is key when the sun is calling you out. I hope you’ll enjoy my version of a Mediterranean lunch as much as you can enjoy the view in these photos of the place where I usually spend my summer vacations. Summer is near so start preparing!
