Recipe: Simple Summer Salad

This salad is so easy it’s like cheating!  It’s just cut veggies, some chopped fresh basil and a dash of sea salt, but it is absolutely delicious. The ripe summer tomatoes give it a tangy sweetness and the cucumbers give it a salty base.  Add in some other veggies like avocado, colored peppers, or celery.  Try dill instead of basil or maybe fresh oregano and parsley. Get creative and have fun!

Ingredients
1 large cucumber chopped
3 cups of cherry tomatoes cut in halves or quarters
2 cloves garlic minced
1 tsp sea salt or pink Himalayan salt
5 leaves fresh basil chopped
2 scallions chopped
5 radishes sliced thin

Toss together and serve.   This is delicious after it sits and marinates for a couple of hours in the refrigerator so it can definitely be made ahead of time, too.  Be creative, try different herbs and veggies.  Serve over lettuce, brown rice or potatoes.  Such a colorful, fresh and healthy side dish!
