Solstice Salads

Dorothy frequently made a Tomato - Cucumber salad this time of year. The cukes were peeled and thinly sliced. The tomatoes were cut in wedges. A bit of thinly sliced new onion and green pepper for texture and flavor. The dressing was just vinegar and freshly ground pepper. Refrigerate for an hour or so.
I don't bother peeling the cuke. Some think the skin bitter. It seldom is in my experience and usually those are the long traveled winter cukes.
solstice party? A potluck of fresh seasonal salads including gazpacho!

  1. I recently made gazpacho for the first time. If I'd known how easy good food was to make, I'd have been a happier, healthier person long since, and not needed to bother with blogs and other crutches. Goddamn it. Whom may I sue?

    My gazpacho kicks ass.
