Summer Vegetable "Ceviche"

My family has been on this island for something close to forty five summers and we just bought an air conditioner yesterday. I don't know if it is the hottest July in forty five summers or the relief I, the very pregnant sister, and Anna, the bride to be sister, just needed to get by.

In any case it feels great and my sister's wedding is officially tomorrow. There are four houses and countless hotel rooms filled with family and friends scattered across the island. We're eating a lot, playing a lot, and having a ball. I made us a no-cook dinner before the blessed air conditioner arrived. This summer vegetable "ceviche" was on the menu and is something I will make again.

Ps. Dylan is the only person I know who has fabulous humidity hair. I look like Elvis.
