Erica's Summer Salad
2 large or 3 small cucumbers
a few sprigs of basil
ume plum or balsamic vinegar (optional)
This salad is the epitome of summer - perfect for a hot summer day! Chop cucumbers and tomatoes and combine in a bowl. Add finely chopped basil. Drizzle with olive oil and vinegar (if desired). Salt to taste. Eat pronto or let it marinate in the fridge for a few hours. We also like to make this salad with tamari/soy sauce instead of salt. Enjoy!
