The backyard gardens are starting to produce so I thought I'd share my cucumber tomato salad recipe!

The first step is quite simple: if you don't have a garden, make friends with a neighbor who will give you fresh tomatoes and cucumbers. (BTW, Elliott has the best vegetables!)


  • Cucumber
  • Tomato
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp garlic
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • slivered basil leaf
  • salt
  • pepper

Dice the vegetables, then salt/pepper to taste. Mix the olive oil, lemon juice, and garlic well then drizzle over vegetables. Sprinkle with slivers of basil.
