Is it hot enough outside for you?
These warm days certainly call for salad! I have visited our farmer’s market the last two weeks and bought nice fresh cucumbers and green peppers. We are getting ripe tomatoes from our own two plants every day. It’s such a treat having fresh veggies - there is nothing better. I’m not sure where this recipe originated, but I found it in my recipe file. It’s fast and easy and uses the fresh veggies we have available now!
4 tomatoes, seeded and diced
2 cucumbers, peeled and diced (if large remove the seeds)
2 green peppers, seeded and diced
1 red onion, sliced
1 can pitted ripe olives, drained
1 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp pepper
Layer vegetables in a large bowl, combine dressing ingredients, pour over vegetables, chill over night, toss together before serving.
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup vinegar
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
fresh parsley as desired
2 cloves garlic minced
2 green onions
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground cumin
Whisk ingredients together.
