So this was part of lunch today and it was so good......bursting with flavor and just a quick summer salad to make up fresh out of the garden.
I love this time of year when I can just go to my garden and basically pick a meal! ;) And I'm sure it's not just me but you can't beat that fresh picked flavor.
This year we planted a couple of Sunsweet Cherry Tomato plants and they are just full of super sweet yellow/orange tomatoes so I threw some of those in but you can use whatever kind you have!
When I dished some up for me I added some dry roasted sunflower and pumpkin seeds that I had roasted yesterday gave it a little extra crunch and made it more filling but it's really good either way.
Sweet Basil Tomato and Cucumber Salad
5-6 tomatoes, coarsely chopped (if you use cherry tomatoes just quarter them)
1 small handful of fresh basil leaves, sliced into thin ribbons
Real Salt to taste
a splash of Balsamic Vinegar
Combine all ingredients in a bowl stir, taste add more of what you want. ;)
I love my Excalibur Dehydrator only problem is that I sometimes need more than just the nine trays..... especially this time of year. I have had my eye on one of these stainless steel beauties!
