Cucumber Bruschetta Side Salad


So easy – so gooooooooood and gourmet. Here it is:

  • 1- Hot House Cucumber, peeled and cut into fours and then sliced in whatever thickness you like. I did about 1/4 inch slices
  • 2- ripe and good medium sized Red Tomatoes (I used Heirloom, although they are not always easy to find) chopped up into approximately the same size pieces as the cucumbers
  • 1- medium sized Green Heirloom tomato. cut like the tomatoes above.
  • 1/2 red onion diced very small
  • about a 1/2 cup chopped almonds
  • olive oil, salt to taste and a dash of Champagne White Wine Vinegar.

I served this as a dinner salad in a coffee cup on the plate with the rest of dinner. It looked super fancy because my coffee cups are small and petite looking. I wouldn’t use a big coffee mug – different vibe… wrong vibe. This salad is pristine and delicate even though it’s very hearty and basic. You can use a pretty glass, or desert bowl – whatever, just keep it off the plate – it’s juicy!

Always use organic ingredients whenever possible – it tastes better, better for you and good for the planet. Win-win-win! All the above ingredients are available organically.
