A fresh and juicy side dish for your summer meals!  It can be made ahead and kept in the fridge for 4 or 5 days.  Flavour will intensify each day. Use Roma tomatoes if you can.  They have a great meaty flesh that’s perfect for this salad.

Ingredients

  • 12 medium sized ripe Roma tomatoes
  • 1 and a half English cucumbers
  • ½ of a sweet onion (Vidalia) sliced thinly
  • 10 to 12 fresh basil leaves

Dressing:

  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup red wine vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

 

  1. Slice and cut the tomatoes into bite sized pieces (4 pieces per slice usually works well)
  2. Peel and slice cucumber into bite sized pieces 
  3. Roll and slice basil leaves thinly (‘chiffonade’)
  4. Combine tomatoes, cucumbers, onion and basil in a serving bowl and set aside while you assemble dressing
  5. Mix dressing in a measuring cup or jar.  Whisk or shake to combine. Pour over tomatoes and cucumber mix and toss well.
