This is one of my favorite salads of Summer. It’s a standby in my house because tomatoes and cucumbers are always in abundance, especially if you have a garden! It’s refreshing and perfect to accompany a good fresh meal on a hot day. It’s also good to take to a cookout because you don’t have to worry about it sitting out for too long.
It’s even better the second day after the flavors have had a chance to mingle together. If you like onions, I’d suggest thinly slicing some red onion to add as well. I don’t like uncooked onions so I leave them out.
-2 Large Ripe Tomatoes
-1 Large English Cucumber
-Handful of Basil
-3 Tablespoons Italian Dressing
Cut the tomatoes into wedges. Wash and peel the cucumber; cut into slices and then halve. Chiffonade the basil and sprinkle on top. Stir in Italian Dressing and add more to your personal preference if needed. Simple yet delicious!
