Today was a beautiful 75°F and sunny. I couldn’t wait to spend my Saturday outside in the park. I knew I’d get hungry so I threw together this delicious cucumber tomato salad and hit the park. The park eventually became uninviting, as it was some sort of organized dance parade that sounded like Electric Zoo, but it was relaxing long enough to enjoy my lunch.
Ingredients: 1/2 hot house cucumber 2 plum tomatoes 1 1/2 tsp oil 1 T finely chopped red onion splash of white vinegar salt pepper oregano
1. Wash and cut cucumber in half lengthwise, then into slices and fold into a paper towel to absorb excess water.
2. Wash and chop tomatoes into bite size pieces.
3. Cut the onion and add them into a bowl with the cucumber and tomato.
4. Drizzle with remaining ingredients and toss.
Serve with bread for dipping.
*For a heartier meal add red or white beans or peppers.
