Yay! For my 500th post!!!!

Our local deli serves the cucumber and tomato salad that inspired this cucumber salad recipe. Although I can never actually taste the cucumbers or tomatoes in theirs, since it’s drenched in bottled Italian dressing. Since it uses two veggies that are ripe in the garden right now, it was the perfect choice for us!

Although Pumpkin’s mostly outgrown his sous chef stage, he mixed together the dressing, while I sliced the veggies. 🙂

Italian Cucumber Salad

Italian Cucumber Salad

2 cucumbers, 8 roma tomatoes, 1/2 c. fresh grated cheese (I use pecorino romano), 1/3 c. white vinegar, 3 Tbsp. olive oil, 2 Tbsp. sugar, 1 Tbsp. minced garlic, 1 Tbsp. parsley, 2 tsp. marjoram, 2 tsp. basil, 2 tsp. oregano, 1 tsp. sage, fresh ground sea salt, fresh cracked black pepper

Slice cucumbers and roma tomatoes and set aside. Mix together remaining ingredients. Pour dressing over veggies and toss. Serve chilled.
