Cucumbers, tomatoes and fresh dill

Aunt Pauline’s Garden always provided most of our summer meals when I went to visit.  “Go get some tomatoes and cucumbers from the garden, and grab a pinch of dill too.”  And remember to shut the gate so the dogs don’t get in the garden!

This salad is definitely best as a “fresh-out-of-the-garden” salad when cucumbers and tomatoes are in season.  Add some raw feta cheese or blue cheese, 4 ounces of grilled chicken and serve over a bed of baby spinach or shredded green cabbage or any fresh greens you love!  This picture uses sprouts!  Love those summer time veggies!
