This light, summery salad is from Provence, and perfect for summer days and the feast of St. Martha.

Since Jesus told Martha to not worry about things, but to listen to His word, we should keep our meals simple on this day, and spend time outside of the kitchen to meditate on the Gospel.

DIRECTIONS

Mix equal amounts of shredded celery and chopped water cress, the grated peel of 1/2 orange, 3 sprigs of chopped parsley, 6 stoned black olives, chopped, and 2 sliced tomatoes. Make a dressing of one part lemon juice and two parts olive oil. Toss just before serving.
