I first made this tomato, cucumber and red onion salad just last week, have since made it again and plan on making it again this week! I’m a little obsessed. And it’s not even summertime yet so I know the tomatoes are just going to get better and better.
We are lucky here in Savannah. Because it’s so warm, our local farmers’ market opens in March AND it’s within walking distance to from our neighborhood! We try to go every week – it’s fun and happening and the kids love it! At any rate, I had some really pretty tomatoes and cucumbers that I wanted to do something with, so I whipped this up as a side for dinner one night.
The dressing is tangy, but sweet because of the honey. It’s ridiculously good. I never would have thought to give it to my 1-year old, but I think it looked so pretty that she wanted to try. She kept pointing at and little by little, finished off what was left of the salad. Good for her! She is definitely my good eater. So go ahead, give it a whirl…especially if you have the opportunity to pick some really fresh and fabulous produce!
