Cucumber and tomato salad

cucumber salad, chicken with onion and GF naan

A very tasty salad is cucumber and tomato. It is a nice salad in that you can do all sorts of things with those two ingredients as a start. I like to take tomatoes and dice them up, dice up cucumbers and add some finely diced sweet onions. Drizzle some olive oil over it, a squeeze of lemon juice and toss.

The salad above I sprinkled with dried mint leaves and let it sit in the fridge to let the flavors meld.

I love to use garden fresh cukes and tomatoes, but my garden this year was pretty non-existent due to weather and not having the energy to do much. I do have a couple tomatoes in pots that have tomatoes on them, but they are still quite green, so I had to make due with what I could get at the grocery store as I haven't been to the farmers market in a while.

I chose Roma tomatoes for this salad as I wanted a nice meaty tomato and made a big batch. When serving it yesterday I made a dressing of plain Greek yogurt with a squeeze of lemon juice and more mint leaves.

It was quite delicious yesterday, but after sitting and melding over night...YUM!!!!!!
