Tomato, cucumber & basil salad
This is so simple, yet so perfect. The produce is fresh from the farmer’s market and all we did was dress it up with a little olive oil and red sea salt. Joel had never had Japanese cucumbers before so we added it to our salad. Instead of Italian sweet basil, we used Thai basil since I bought a bunch (only $1!) for Thai curry.
The week before, it was tomatoes with Italian sweet basil, olive oil and several different types of salt (red sea salt, kosher sea salt and truffled salt).
Too bad tomatoes will go away soon…or will they? Maybe people grow them in tents around here and I’ll have them year-round at the farmer’s market?
p.s. It is so much easier to eat fresh and healthy in San Francisco! Last year at this time, I was making heavy dips and washing it down with beer.
