I had a few items, left over from my 1st ever garden, that made for a delightful salad the other night.
I believe I shall call it "Summer's End Salad". What do you think?
It is very simple and, therein, lies the beauty.
Summer's End Salad
2 large tomatoes, coarsely chopped
1 medium cucumber, peeled, seeded and chunked
1 yellow pepper, sliced
Several basil leaves, chopped
1/2 onion, diced
A drizzle of extra virgin olive oil
A splash of vinegar (any variety will do)
A few dashes each of my Signature Spice Blend
A pinch or two of kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Combine gently and serve.
