Cucumber Salad

Happy Monday! Hope you had a fantastic weekend!

This weekend we went to a bbq cookout at a friends house, and I took this salad. It uses all easy to find ingredients during the summer time. Requires no actual cooking and tastes better the next day. It’s a great side dish!

Its been hot here, so a salad that is served chill and requires no cooking means no extra heat to your house. And I love being able to use fresh ingredients that are in season. In fact, the cucumbers and tomatoes were from the farmers market since we didn’t get a garden put in this year

Total time to make this salad was probably twenty minutes. Maybe even less. No reason not to add it as a side to your next get together! Or to pack for lunches during the week which I’m doing with some leftovers.

My trick to finely mincing a fresh onion is the food processor. I just quarter the onion and toss it in. You can do the same thing with fresh garlic to easily mince it.
