And since I STILL have tomatoes growing, blossoms and all....
Here's is a nice refreshing healthy salad, to make you feel better among the rich and delicious food of the holidays.
Zesty cucumber tomato basil salad
1 lb cherry tomatoes sliced
3 cucumbers peeled and sliced
3 tbsp white wine vinegar
2 tbsp olive oil
1 pinch of sugar
2 tbsp dill (fresh or 1 tbsp dried)
1/2 purple onion sliced and half mooned
1 tbsp minced garlic
whisk the vinegar, oil, dill and garlic together, toss with all the veggies. Let sit for at least 30 minutes and serve.
Also you can add in 1/2 lb fresh green beans cut in half.
You can also toss in some diced avocados and corn, a lil bit of cumin and chili powder and a pinch of salt and it will make it a zesty fiesta salad.
This is especially cheap if you grow your own veggies like the tomatoes and cucumbers.
