This dish is the perfect summer side.  It’s easy, colorful, make-ahead and, most importantly, delicious!  I like to pack it up and take along to the beach or on a picnic, serve alongside ribs, or make a batch to take into work to have for lunch for the week.  If enjoying for lunch, you could add shredded chicken, or boiled shrimp, to make it a little more hearty, or serve alongside a summer soup or salad.

Summer Salad

July 23, 2010

I love summer.  The abundance of fresh vegetables are so pleasing to the palate.  This little salad is great to serve on a weeknight with homemade pizza, or nice enough to serve alongside a holiday dinner.  This dish really adds color to your plate — whatever the occasion. 

Tomato, Onion & Cucumber Salad 

1 red onion, sliced 

2 cucumbers, sliced 

3 Roma tomatoes, sliced 

1 TBS EVOO 

1.5 TBS vinegar (anything works, red, white, balsamic — here I used Tarragon Vinegar) 

Salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste 

Toss everything together and refrigerate for at least an hour.  Served chilled.
