Since it is so hot, I am trying to not use the oven as much as normal. I'm mean for crying out loud that little sucker turns this house into an inferno! So, with that said, cold meals are the way to go this summer. Salads are great for the summer time. One of our faves is the cucumber, tomato, onion salad. I wish I had a pic, but we devoured it before I could grab a camera! So, use your imagination!!!
Cucumber Tomato Onion Salad
Get an 8x8 dish
Slice the cukes, tomatoes and onions the same thickness
Layer them in your dish
Pour Italian dressing over
Refrigerate for a couple hours
This salad is great for summer cookouts or potlucks. It will hold up well to heat! I will come back and add a picture when I make it again...probably sometime this weekend! ;)
I guess I need to go. My sidekick is awfully quiet! Until next time!!!!
UPDATE: The heat index is 112 degrees here this afternoon. So, this salad is back on the menu!!! I promised I'd get you a pic. So, here it is! Enjoy and stay cool!!
