Tomatoes and Cucumbers
I am really looking forward to the tomatoes that will be available at the farmer's market in August and September. There are many varieties and are all flavorful. Until then, I have been buying mini heirloom tomatoes which have been delicious. It is so hot here that it often dulls the appetite, or at least the appetite to deal with food preparation. One of my favorite summer salads is a simple mix of tomatoes and cucumbers with olive oil, white balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper. This particular salad, seen above, is with the mini heirloom tomatoes and Persian cucumbers which are small with practically unnoticeable seeds and a thin, sweet skin.
