Zucchini, Burst Cherry Tomatoes and Shrimp Salad

It’s summertime—gardens are bursting with tomatoes and zucchini and hot peppers! Over the last few years I have been setting up little garden beds wherever I can fit them in my Los Angeles home’s small yard, but last winter I went whole-hog: I transformed my front lawn into four new raised garden beds, separated by gravel paths and succulents.  Over the winter, these new beds yielded bountiful crops of fava beans, Tuscan kale and all manner of lettuces. And as summer gets going, they are already producing great cherry tomatoes, hot peppers, zucchini and borlotti beans.
