Cucumber & Tomato Salad

In addition to bringing me fresh fruits and veggies week after week, Farm Fresh Delivery also sends along some recipes in the produce bin. These recipes are always in tune with what’s in season, and this one especially stood out to me because it has an Asian twist on the original Cucumber and Tomato salad with vinegar. It a refreshing side dish on any hot day!

Cucumber & Tomato Salad

1 cucumber
1-2 tomatoes
1 Tablespoon Toasted Sesame Oil (or Peanut Oil)
1 Tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar (or Rice Wine)
1 Tablespoon Soy Sauce
1 Tablespoon (more or less) of Sesame Seeds

Use a vegetable peeler to remove most of the cucumber skin and cut off the ends. Slice lengthwise once and then slice into thin “half moons”. Core and dice the tomatoes and add with the cucumber slices in a mixing bowl. Add in the oil, vinegar, soy sauce and sesame seeds and gently mix everything together. Chill for 20 minutes before serving.

This recipe is adapted from the Beth Blessing original recipe that came with the delivery. For more recipes from Farm Fresh Delivery, visit their web site.

    My mil served a mission in Chile and makes this all the time. Her variation is:

    tomatoes
    cucumbers
    olive oil
    aji (a jalapeno salsa)
    salt
    pepper

    It makes it sooooo tasty! Definitely try it out. I can get the recipe for the aji if you need it. :)
