It’s a rainy day and I needed a little color to remind me of this summer that went too fast. For dinner, I decided to have this fresh and colorful cucumber and tomato salad. Although my older daughter is very picky with her salad, she loves cucumber. We all enjoyed this salad that we paired with my lamb meatballs, and some boiled plantains.
Cucumber and Tomatoes Salad!
1 or 2 Cucumbers
3 Vine ripe tomatoes, quartered
1 red bell pepper cut into thin strips
1 small onion sliced
¼ cup Apple Cider vinegar
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp. white sugar
1 tsp Garlic and Parsley seasoning
1 tsp lemon pepper seasoning
1 tsp dried basil
Salt and pepper
Peel and slice the cucumbers into ½ inch rounds
In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, the vinegar, the dried basil, the sugar, and the seasoning. Set aside.
In a large bowl, add the cucumber, tomatoes, onions, and bell pepper, season them with salt and pepper.
Pour the dressing over and toss well
I hope your Thursday was sunnier than mine, if not, enjoy this beautiful salad with me.

I love miso which I had this afternoon, Aisasami.!
I’m a great fan of salads! As I often eat vegetarian & vegan dishes, I just need them on the menu.
Same for me, I usually have a salad every day for lunch!
