Cucumber Tomato Basil Salad


Serve this simple, easy salad over fresh lettuce leaves. You can also add kalamata olives, chopped red onions, and feta cheese for a Greek-type salad. Halved cherry tomatoes also work well here. Enjoy!


2 medium cucumbers, sliced

3 to 4 firm tomatoes, quartered, t hen sliced

1/2 cup thinly sliced fresh basil

1 to 2 cloves fresh garlic, finely chopped (I usually use 4)

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


Optional Additions:

kalamata olives

chopped or thinly sliced red onion

feta cheese



Place all ingredients into a large bowl and gently toss together. Add salt and pepper to taste, toss again. Pair this salad with a piece of wild salmon or organic chicken breast! Delish.


Salad is best served about 1 hour after it has been made.
