Homemade Cucumber Salad

Submitted by: GIMMESOME3K

Introduction

This is an approximation of my favourite recipe I used to make while working at a Historic Fort..yum! This is an approximation of my favourite recipe I used to make while working at a Historic Fort..yum!

Ingredients

    1 cucumber
    1 tomato or a handfull of cherry tomatoes
    1/4 of an onion
    handful of fresh basil
    two sprigs of fresh rosemary
    salt and pepper to taste

    optional: trade out the rosemary or add other fresh herbs like thyme, savoury, sage and oregano. Use fresh for better taste, though dried will do. Perfect recipe for summer!

Directions

Since I always made this using one cucumber, please feel free to double, triple, etc the recipe. This is only an approximation, I used simply balsamic vinegar and a very little olive oil as a dressing, to my taste (I like to have a lot of juice in there!)

Chop the cucumbers with the peel on, and I prefer it chunky (in defiance of my mom's thinly sliced semi-sweet cucumber salad that I really really hate! lol) but cut it however you like. Add all the seasonings to taste, I really enjoy the taste of basil and rosemary and tend to make it a bit stronger than most people may like.
