My New Favorite Salad

It’s that time of year again. My mother’s garden is producing fruit and I’m well supplied with veggies—especially tomatoes and cucumbers. Fearful that my Caprese salad consumption might turn me into a giant ball of fresh mozzarella (now, that’s a visual!), I decided to change things up, starting by not necessarily keeping my tomatoes separate from my cukes. Easy enough, right?

So I threw together this Greek summer salad of tomatoes and cucumbers (both in chunks), diced red onion, a few diced Kalamata olives and feta cheese crumbles, all tossed with balsamic vinaigrette, and it’s become my new favorite salad, my go-to snack. It’s fresh and delicious and an idea worth sharing—if you haven’t already thought of it yourself.

Enjoy the season!
