Tomato and Cukes


Busy Day Salad ~ From the vine


On a sizzling  summer day, this cool  cucumber salad hits the spot! It combines vine ripened   

 tomatoes, crisp  cucumbers, fresh  oregano, a super simple vinaigrette AND it 

comes together in minutes! No cooking  in a hot kitchen required!





I fell in love with this humble yet delish combo  as a

kid, all the veggies and herbs coming straight from my Grandmother’s and Dad’s  beautiful gardens.

Our  tomatoes and cukes aren’t quiet ready yet…

but the fresh oregano  is from our kitchen garden, flowers and all.

So pretty & fragrant! {Love}




I whisk together an easy  vinaigrette made of

extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, 




fleur de sel and freshly ground pepper.

The chopped fresh oregano is sprinkled on top. Now all you have to do is give it a toss. 









AND done!

Tomato & cuke salad anyone?
