One of my favorite parts about Summer is growing my own garden. I love to plant my own fresh herbs and vegetables, especially cherry tomatoes, cucumbers and parsley. This recipe is a great way to use up our fresh produce and incorporates lots of cucumbers, which are my kids’ favorite vegetable. WIN!
Another great thing about this tomato cucumber salad is that it’s SO versatile! Add in sliced olives, chickpeas or pine nuts to give it more of a Greek spin, or even some pasta or chicken to serve as a main course! You can also substitute the herbs depending on what you have in your fridge or garden, such as adding in basil instead of parsley. This is a family staple and is sure to become a hit in your household!
