I needed to come up with a potluck dish in a pinch and with my CSA to the rescue, I made this very tasty salad. The cucumbers that I used were huge and it still felt like it wasn’t enough, but with a party of 20 people, it actually worked out great. Adjust according to the amount of people. If you just wanted to make it for yourself, it will store nicely for a few days.
I have to admit that I didn’t really measure much here, I just threw some things together. This can be more tomato or more cucumber or equal amounts; your choice!!
- 1/2 cup Balsamic vinegar
- 1/8 to 1/4 cup Olive Oil (I used a light olive oil here as sometimes EVOO can be strong in certain salads)
- 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
- 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
- 2 Large Cucumber (chopped, you can leave in seeds or scoop them out and then chop)
- 4 Roma Tomatoes or more (chopped)
- 5 Green onions (chopped)
- 3 tablespoons of fresh basil
Whisk the first four ingredients into a small bowl.
Throw the last four ingredients into a medium to large bowl and then pour the contents from the small bowl over the veggies and use hands to mix it up. Once everything has had a chance to incorporate really well, you can pour out any excess liquid mixture. Let cool in fridge or eat right away.
