Cucumber Caprese Salad

























If you love growing your own vegetable garden, this is a wonderful little salad you can make with a few cherry tomatoes and a couple of cucumbers!  But even if you don't garden you'll love it. It is so unbelievably simple, and so delicious and healthy and just perfect for a summer picnic or cookout. You can serve it as a main dish or side. Or, you could even spread it on toast or Brushetta or a Crostini for a wonderful appetizer! And don't forget my favorite olive oil and balsamic vinegar from Star Fine Foods for all your summer salads! 

Cucumber Caprese Salad

2 cups grape or cherry tomatoes 
2 English cucumbers, cut into chunks
8 oz. fresh mozzarella, cut into chunks or sliced and quartered
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

1 teaspoon sugar 
1 garlic clove, minced 
Pinch of salt, 
pepper and more sugar, to taste

Wash, dry, and cut up the cucumbers and rinse the tomatoes. Place both in a large bowl. Add the basil and mozzarella. Next, whisk together the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, salt, pepper and sugar. Pour over the tomato-mozzarella mixture and toss. Serve immediately.
