just a mom figuring it out one day at a time

Fun Tomato, Cucumber, Basil & Feta Summer Salad

KC and I were invited to a brunch today and needed to bring something. Wanting to make use of items from my garden, I came up with this salad. I used predominantly the cherry type tomatoes, but if I were short on them, I would have used just the regular kind. We grew normal cucumbers and although I used it for this salad, I did remove some of the seeds. Given that I only had one cucumber left, I also augmented with an English cucumber (the long skinny one) because it has less seeds. Here is the recipe:

Dressing:

Just mix it all together first and let it sit.

-2 Cloves garlic

-1/8 tsp salt

-pinch of pepper

-2 tbsp balsamic vinegar

-2 tbsp olive oil

Salad:

– 1/2 cup of feta

– 12 oz tomato – cut into small chunks or circles

– 1 english cucumber

– 1/4 cup diced red onion

– 2 tbsp of fresh, chopped basil

Put all of the vegetables in together first, then add dressing. Fold feta into the mixture and serve. You can serve as a side or on top of greens. Enjoy!
