Tomato and Cucumber Salad with Basil

Tomato and Cucumber Salad with Basil

Committee meeting working lunch 7/19/12 – served with honey mustard chicken sandwiches

This refreshing salad shows off fresh garden or farmers market ingredients at their very best.

  • 2 medium cucumbers*
  • 3 medium tomatoes*
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup loosely packed basil* leaves
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • Large pinch salt, more to taste

Chop cucumbers and tomatoes into bite sized pieces and combine in a large bowl. Use your hands to tear the basil into the bowl – each leaf should end up in 2-3 pieces.

Add oil, vinegar, and salt. Toss to coat. Taste and add more salt if desired.

Serves 4-6.

*Cucumbers, tomatoes, and basil are all easy to grow in your summer garden.
