My interests are sewing, quilting, NASCAR, and camping. I am married to a street rodder. We have multiple old cars - 1961 Willys Jeep Station Wagon and some Mopars. My husband's name is Denny and he has been into old cars for a long time. We have 5 children and 11 grandchildren that are just the greatest children ever! They are smart, beautiful, funny all rolled in together! We have 1 dog, Marcy, who is a St. Bernard and 1 cat that just showed up one day named Happy. She showed up during a NASCAR race and we named her after the winner - Happy Harvick.
I do hope you like my blog. It includes a variety of things and I may not be on it everyday, but I try to add things as much as possible.
This salad is just so good! And it is easy to make! This salad reminds me of the fresh vegetables of summer. Even though it has been a damp overcast kind of week, it brings the smell of summer to the house.
Cucumber and Tomato Salad
3 medium sized cucumbers or 6 mini cucumbers (I used mini’s)
1 (10.5 oz) container of grape tomatoes, halved
1 medium red onion, finely diced
6 sprigs of fresh dill (you can sub 1 tsp dill weed but fresh is best here)
1 cup zesty Italian salad dressing
Salt and pepper to taste
Quarter or halve the cucumbers depending on the size used, then slice into 1/4″ pieces.
Place the cucumbers in a bowl and add the grapes, onion, and dill.
Toss the cucumber mixture with the Italian dressing until evenly coated with salad dressing. Add some salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate for at least one hour before serving. The longer the better.
