Tastes like summer . . .
Maybe you've made this ; maybe you haven't. To me it epitomizes summer flavors. Scoot down to your local farmer's market and get the ingredients. Better yet, pluck them from your own backyard:)
Taste of Summer Salad
1 large tomato, diced
1 medium cucumber, diced (peeled or not, your call)
1/2 bell pepper, seeded and diced
1 large garlic clove, smashed (or minced, your call)
1 T. extra virgin olive oil
2 T. vinegar (your call--I like Dr. Bragg's apple cider vinegar)
s&p to taste
Combine all ingredients in a pretty bowl and stir gently. Serve at room temperature.
(You can keep adding tomato, cucumber and bell pepper to the juice and garlic clove if you've managed to not eat or drink them, You can also add slivers of fresh basil if you like.)
