There are few things in life more perfect than gorgeous garden veggies! This salad highlights the bounty of summer in the best way!
The juicy ripe tomatoes, the crunchy cucumber, and the zesty dressing make this the perfect summer side! It is great on its own but gets even better when you top grilled chicken or fish with it!
2 cups halved cherry/grape tomatoes
2 cups of cucumbers, quartered and chopped
1/4 cup fresh basil, torn
1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 cup grass-fed feta cheese (optional-equally delicious without it!)
1. Combined all ingredients in a bowl and toss with 1/2 cup of dressing.
2. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes for flavours to marry.
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1/2 cup avocado (or olive) oil
1 tsp salt
1 tsp mustard powder (or 1 tsp Dijon mustard)
1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp dried basil
2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp red chili flakes
Combine in mason jar and shake! Makes a great marinade!
