Cucumber and Tomato Salad with Basil and Dill

Cucumber and Tomato Salad with Basil and Dill
Recipe by Dragon

This is the salad I served with my Grilled Steak with Mushroom Tarragon Sauce. I used a little dill and basil in this simple salad. It turned out so fresh and lovely that I think I'll be making it again and again. Sometimes, simplicity is best. I hope you enjoy it.

Serves: 2

1/2 english cucumber, peel on and cut into small cubes
1 1/2 cups cherry or grape tomatoes, cut in half
1 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped
1 teaspoon fresh dill, chopped
juice of half a lemon
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and Pepper to taste


1. Combine cucumber, tomato and herbs in a bowl.

2. Dress the salad with the lemon juice and olive oil to just coat the tomatoes and cumbers.

3. Season the salad with salt and pepper to taste.

I agree!
Especially with the mushroom sauce (which sounded amazing, by the way).

There is something weird going on...I just made a cucumber tomato salad! With dill.

This is eery. And delicious.

I think I've never used dill in a tomato salad. I'll try it, especially as tomato/cucumber salad is practically the basis of all my summer meals.
