Recipe: Tomato, Cucumber & Basil Salad

Before I post this delicious recipe, I’d like to kindly remind you that this is not a food blog. It won’t take you long to figure that out. I can’t promise beautiful pictures, drop-dead delicious meals or anything that requires a Kitchen Aid food mixer. Somehow that didn’t make it into our house as a wedding gift, but I’ve managed to survive 🙂

What you WILL find on this blog are easy, healthy recipes. We’re all so busy and I understand that. If you’re like me, you like to cook, but you just don’t have much time to spend in the kitchen. Recipes here will be simple, healthy and balanced. My hope is to provide recipes that will make living a healthy lifestyle more manageable and more approachable.

So with that, here is a favorite of mine as of late. It’s fresh and satisfying and can be pulled together in a matter of minutes. I make a big batch and serve it as a side dish when we grill and save the leftovers for lunch. You can also throw this salad over a bowl of quinoa for a complete meal. Goat cheese is a great go-to cheese. Because of its strong flavor, a little bit goes a long way. It’s also low in fat and calorie content when compared to other cheeses. Cheers!

Tomato, Cucumber & Basil Salad:

1 carton cherry tomatoes, halved

1 cucumber, sliced in small chunks

a handful of fresh basil, chopped

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar

Crumbled goat cheese, to taste

It’s as simple as it sounds. Mix all of the chopped ingredients in a bowl, drizzle with olive oil & balsamic vinegar, sprinkle with crumbled goat cheese and enjoy!
