A Summertime Recipe

Raise your hand if you've grown a garden this summer!

Garden grown vegetables make a light and refreshing side dish when it's just plain HOT and sticky outside.Dice up tomatoes and cucumbers and toss them with salt and pepper. Add just a tablespoon (maybe two) of Ranch or Italian dressing.
Let them marinate for an hour. YUM!

ENJOY YOUR SUMMER WEEKEND!

We have the cucumbers but our tomatoes are still green, sadly.

Zucchini on the grill is recently my very favorite thing.

My husband likes these two sliced thin on a plate and drizzled with olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder and basil. But this looks good to me!

Looks great. I have so many cucumbers right now from my CSA. I just made a cucumber salsa but I was thinking about a cucumber, tomato, avacado salad.

So simple, but it looks so good! I definitely don't have a garden, but I'll have to try this recipe. Thanks, Christina!

I don't have a garden, but I'd love this. I order a tomato and cucumber salad whenever I visit one of my favorite restaurants.

Oooo, that looks so good!

I don't have property for a garden, but I do visit the farmer's market.
