When I was growing up my Mother often used this expression, “Cool as a Cucumber.” With our heat wave this week in mind, I am again submitting a tomato cucumber salad recipe that hopefully will make us feel cool!
This recipe was found in the Taste of Home magazine and is super easy with few ingredients!
Balsamic Vegetable Salad:
3 large tomatoes, cut into wedges
3 medium cucumbers, peeled, halved and sliced
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
3 Tbsp water
1 envelope Italian salad dressing mix (dry)
In salad bowl, combine tomatoes and cucumbers. In a small bowl whisk the oil, vinegar, water and dressing mix. Pour over vegetables and toss to coat. Chill until ready to serve.
Feel free to customize it with your favorite veggies.
