Favorite Garden Recipe: Tomato Cucumber Salad with Balsamic Dressing

With vegetable gardens overflowing this time of year, we have an overstock in our refrigerator. Some from a friend's garden and some from our local market. With that, I'm all about salads this week. Tonight's is one of our favorites!

Tomato Cucumber Salad with Balsamic Dressing


  • 2 large ripe tomatoes
  • 1 large cucumber, peeled 
  • 1/2 cup Vidalia onion, chopped (Vidalia are my favorite for their sweetness)
  • 1/2 cup kalamata olives, halved
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/8 cup olive oil
  • sea salt
  • pepper
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese

    1. Mix together tomatoes, cucumber, onion, and olives in serving bowl.
    2. In separate small bowl, whisk together balsamic vinegar and oil until well mixed. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. I tend to go very light on the amount of dressing because the vegetables are filled with their own delicious juices. I like a small amount of dressing just to add flavor.
    3. Pour dressing over vegetables and toss. 
    4. Sprinkle with feta cheese.
