My Favorite August Snack….

One of my favorite "end of the summer" snacks is simply Marinated Tomatoes and Cucumbers:

I chop up the veggies, add a little bit of Balsamic Vinaigrette, sea salt, lots of Florida seasoned pepper and ribbons of basil:

I like to keep a bowl of this in the fridge and snack on it in the afternoon.

And,  although I do not have much of a green thumb, my basil is still growing strong!

If I had a green thumb, I would have an abundance of tomatoes and cukes, but I don't, so it's off to the market for me!

  1. Love this too! We add onions to ours and it's so refreshing on a hot day.


  2. We've been eating this too! I had a ton of cukes this year but my tomatoes are being stubborn about ripening.

  3. I have been on a kick with cukes. I love the little ones - peel and just eat away. Your snack sounds really good - will have to try it. My tomatoes were terrible this year, not many at all.

  4. Yum! I usually add some thin sliced sweet onion in also.
    Have an enjoyable and safe holiday weekend.

  5. Patti, I don't eat tomatoes, but the cucumber would please my taste buds. '-)
    The salad looks really pretty in the CC bowl.
    Happy Weekend!
