Cucumber Tomato Salad Recipe

Why, good morning! I hope you’re doing well. It’s been a terribly hot and sticky week here where we are. As most of you know, we just recently moved into our new house and were eager to run the central air while we were unpacking. However, sometimes unexpected things happen, and it wasn’t working properly πŸ˜₯ . So we’ve been gradually unpacking bit by bit, and sweating it out all the while. Cold showers mid day, day trips to places indoors where we can bask in their nice cool air…anything to keep cool! Drinking lots of lemonade, iced tea and indulging in frozen treats have been helping as well ;).

When Matt went to work his 24 hour shift the other day, I didn’t really know what to make for myself for dinner. It’s hard cooking for one person sometimes! And I just wanted something that would be refreshing….didn’t want to turn on my oven or stove top AT ALL. I ended upΒ making this delicious salad which was just the thing I needed! The recipe is super easy and it makes the perfect side dish for any BBQ/ Summer time meal!
