Today I’m sharing a super easy side dish that we enjoy throughout spring and summer months.
I was browsing through some old Facebook pictures that I posted on my personal page last year, and saw where I posted a cell phone pic of this recipe for cucumber tomato salad before I started the blog.
I just love fresh cucumbers. My Mom has a green thumb to die for and always shares her organic fresh veggies and fruits with me.
This is her yard and greenhouse. Good darn thing they are just out of the city limits and have a well for their water supply. I don’t think they’d be able to afford a city water bill! LOL
All there is to this recipe is slicing some cucumbers, tomatoes, red onions and chopping some basil…
Then making a vinaigrette dressing with olive oil, apple cider vinegar, red wine vinegar, dill weed, sugar, salt and pepper. Drizzle it over the salad. Waalaa.
I hope you enjoy this awesome little salad as much as we do!
