Fresh Summer Salad

 Garden produce is keeping me busy.  This week I thought I would share a favorite easy recipe using the tomatoes and cucumbers that are plentiful right now.  This is delicious and refreshing.  My kids even love it.

Tomato and Cucumber Salad

2 cucumbers, chopped in bite size pieces
3 large tomatoes, chopped in bite size pieces
2 T. red wine vinegar
1 t. basil
1 t. salt

Combine all ingredients.  Serve salad immediately or chill and serve later.  If you serve later you will want to serve with a slotted spoon to keep extra juice off your plate.  Our family fights over who gets to drink the juice once the tomatoes and cucumbers are gone.  Note:  You can vary the ingredients to suit your taste.  My kids like a few more cucumbers thrown in.
