Cucumber and Tomato Salad

3 Sep

During the summer  salads are refreshing. Tomatoes are wonderful this time of year and cucumbers add nice coolness to a meal on a hot day. I made this salad with my favorite basic vinaigrette.

  • 3 medium sized cucumbers or 6 mini cucumbers , peeled and cut half lengthwise and sliced
  • about 2 cups of tomatoes of your choice cut in halves or cut in quarters
  • fresh parsley or basil

Mix together. Toss with vinaigrette.

For the vinaigrette

1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1 cup canola oil

Combine the mustard and vinegar in a blender and blend at medium speed for about 15 seconds. With the machine running, slowly add the oil. This will make enough for few days.

      I agree, especially in 94 degree weather in Florida!
