Update: Congrats to Kristal Woods for winning this giveaway!
While you probably have a base tan and have sweated over a grill by now, today is officially the first day of summer.
Welcome, summer. We are so glad to have you.
In honor of this warm season, here’s a cool recipe that you can easily transport. Say, to the beach for a picnic.
Simple Tomato & Cucumber Salad
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3 splashes red wine vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste
1 large cucumber, halved lengthwise, seeded & diced
4 Roma tomatoes, seeded & diced
¼ red onion, diced
¼ cup feta cheese, crumbled or diced
Fresh mint leaves, chopped
- In the bottom of a bowl, whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper. Add remaining ingredients and toss to coat.
- Let stand at room temperature for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Taste for seasoning. Serve at room temp or chill and serve cold.
And since no picnic is complete without a blanket, we’re giving one away! Leave a comment telling us your favorite summer dish to enter to win this fantastic beach picnic blanket.
