Garden Cucumber Tomato Salad is perfect for a hot summer evening.

It is a wonderful way to use up your fresh garden vegetables. And what a delicious way to enjoy them!

Tossing a Garden Salad

One evening, craving something cool and refreshing, I decided to toss some garden vegetables that where in my fridge together in a bowl. Cucumber. Red, Ripe Tomato. Bell Pepper. Sweet Onion.

Add to that some minced garlic. Fresh herbs. I love growing fresh herbs. Basil and Chives.

Then to that, I drizzled some yummy Red Wine Vinegar and Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Sprinkled the top with salt and some freshly ground black pepper. Oh my!

What a perfect blend. Simple and Fresh. We loved it!

Speaking of pepper, can I just say how much I love using my Copper Pepper Mill? I use it in my everyday cooking, but also to garnish salads. One of my favorite things is to go around the table and sprinkle black pepper on the salads of those who request it. Like in a fancy restaurant. Except, that the members of my family love my pepper mill so much they want to be the one to crank the handle. Spoil my fun.

Anyway, I hope you’ll enjoy Garden Cucumber Tomato Salad as much as we do! Serve it with a BLT sandwich, Quiche, or Grilled Pork Chops.
