Mom's Simple Savory Salad

Mom's Simple Savory Salad

This simple yet scrumptious salad only includes 3 main garden fresh ingredients:

2  large tomatoes (washed and chopped)
2 medium green bell peppers (cleaned out and chopped)
1 large english cucumber or 2 to 3 medium regular cucumbers (washed & chopped) (I leave the skin on but you may peel the cukes)
1 tablespoon fresh chives (washed & chopped)
1 tablespoon fresh dill weed (washed & chopped) (If you don't like dill - fresh basil is also great in this salad)
1 tablespoon (or to taste) balsamic vinegar (regular white or apple cider vinegar may be substituted - but use a little less).
1 tablespoon Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper - to taste

Whenever they are in season I add extra ingredients to this salad - like small tender pattipan squash

Prepare the ingredients as described in the ingredients list above.  Then mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. 

Enjoy!!  It is great as a side dish with any summer dinner!

  1. So fresh and colorful, and good for you! Love patty pan squash. When our kids were little we called them Peter Pan squash. (Whatever it takes to get kids to eat the vegetables!)


Please feel free to leave comments or questions (no question is ever stupid) - They will show up on the blog once I have read through them.
Thank You.
