VEGGIES: Israeli Salad

The past few weeks my garden has been overgrown with loads of cucumbers and tomatoes.  I have been making (and freezing) lots of homemade tomato sauce. Recipe coming soon! We have also been eating a lot of my favorite cucumber salad. It is so freaking good!

When I came home from the garden with my latest bounty, E suggested I make Israeli Salad. It was such a great idea! I wish I had thought of it myself! Israeli Salad requires very few ingredients and it stores well in the refrigerator. In fact, I think it tastes better once it has sat in the fridge overnight. It gives it a little extra time for all of the flavors and juices to meld together nicely.

    This makes me wish I liked onions- such a simple recipe and it sounds so refreshing! Salads like this I also always love after they’ve sat for a night:)

    This sounds delicious but I can’t tolerate cucumbers anymore. I used to love them though! My mom would probably love this – she eats cucumbers all the time! Thanks for sharing! xx
