"Tastes Like Summer" Salad

I came up with this recipe because I wanted a salad that would showcase the best of summer flavors. 

Tomatoes and cucumbers from Glory Garden are great all by themselves, but the fragrance of basil and the flavor of roasted garlic in the dressing make them even better.

Dressing:

Vegetables needed:

  • Cherry tomatoes, halved
  • Cucumbers, peeled and cut into 1/2" pieces
  • Basil, minced

Mix dressing and set aside (an immersion blender works well but a whisk is fine too).

Cut up an adequate amount of tomatoes and cucumbers to feed your family and mix with minced basil. 

Drizzle with dressing right before serving.  The salad will become very juicy if allowed to sit, so only make what you will eat right away.

This is also great mixed with quinoa, which adds protein and soaks up the flavorful juices and dressing.
