I love healthy eating and now have a new favorite salad I wanted to share with other cucumber and tomato lovers. I did not grow up liking tomatoes at all. In fact, I remember when I was 13, my mom bribed me with a pair of dress shoes that I wanted. But being the bull-headed girl that I was, I ate the tomatoes – making faces and hating every minute of it, got my shoes and never ate another tomato until about 2 years ago. Well, I shouldn’t say never cos I would eat them sliced in sandwiches sometimes, but that’s about it. Then my husband planted some yellow ones in our vegetable garden and I decided to like just eat some at dinner and it was delicious! I haven’t stopped since. I have it in just about all my salads if I can help it. We had an abundance of cucumbers so we had a lot of that too for salads, etc. Recently I decided to not add lettuce to my salad and that is how I came up with my new favorite salad. It’s just diced cucumbers and tomatoes, crumbled cheese, chopped green onion, sunflower seeds or bacon bits and lots of cilantro. If I have avocado on hand, I will add some of that. Add a touch of salad dressing to taste and voila! Heavenly scrumptiousness! 🙂
