This is a great salad to make if you want something quick and just taste like summer.
- 2 large english cucumbers
- 1/2 onion
- 2-3 tomatoes
- 3 Tbsp. white wine vinegar
- 2 Tbsp. olive oil
- 1 tsp. oregano
- 1/8 tsp salt
Make the dressing first: add all ingredients in a small bowl and whisk to combine. Slice the cucumbers and onion and dice the tomatoes removing excess juice. Place in a bowl. Add the dressing and toss to coat. Salt and pepper to taste if needed. Best if refrigerated for at least and hour to let the flavors combine.
I personally like to sprinkle sunflower seeds in my salad when its been served up. Don’t be afraid to make it your own and change things to suit your taste.
Rainy days are just the best in the fall time. There is just something cozy about the cooler temperatures that makes you want to warm up a cup of cider and curl up with a blanket and good book. Or if it’s not a rainy day then it is actually tolerable to be out side and get your fall garden in. Either is a win in my book.
We have some new things for you to try in your baskets this week.
- Italian basil (different from the sweet basil)
- butternut squash
- Edamame beans ( wash and shell, then you can eat it raw or toss in a stir fry, pasta, or on a salad)
more of the usual stuff
- torpedo onion
- green beans
- big variety of peppers (bells, Santa Fe, big Jim, garden salsa)
- cherry tomatoes
I’m going to be posting two recipes later one a refreshing summer salad and the other a home-made pasta
