Cucumber Tomato Salad
We live right next door to a green house filled with peppers, tomatoes and cucumbers. I cannot resist running across the road at any given time and picking up my fresh vegetables. Each spring I plant a small herb garden with dill, parsley, peppermint, and rosemary. I also love to grow basil, but it loves a warm dry climate…so I purchased myself a basil plant and it sits on my kitchen window sill. You can never go wrong by adding fresh herbs to any salad.
