Lemon Cucumber Salad is loaded with cucumbers, tomatoes and onions and topped with a simple lemon vinaigrette.
Whew! It’s hot out there! In Phoenix, we are breaking records once again. We are having a record shattering heat wave. For the last 8 days we have seen high temps over 110° and have not dipped below 90° (for a low). Are you sure this isn’t death valley? Poor Sammy the squirrel is MIA. I am hoping he hitched a ride north for the worst of summer.
This is the perfect time to hibernate a little (hey bears do it during the winter) and pull out some more cold dishes. I find that lemon and cucumbers are extremely cooling and refreshing so I created this fabulous salad using them both. It is unbelievable!
The crisp fresh vegetables with the flavor that this simple lemon vinaigrette provides is fabulous and I love love love this lemony dressing recipe. I love it so much in fact that I quadrupled the vinaigrette recipe and put it in a mason jar in my fridge. It is amazing on leafy green salads, this tomato basil salad and also a nice touch drizzled on quinoa.
