Fresh Garden Salad

  • Slice up one cucumber
  • Dice up one tomato
  • Cube up some mozzarella cheese
  • Organic olive oil
  • Organic Balsamic vinegar
  • Celtic sea salt
  • Ground pepper
  • Chopped fresh basil, oregano or cilantro (optional)

Place all ingredients in a bowl and toss gently.

This salad can take on a variety of flavors.  Change the cheese to feta it tastes completely different.  Instead of using balsamic vinegar try using some beet kvass, bam another dynamic twist on this salad.  Gardens are loaded with fresh herbs this time of the year, get crazy and add some.  Do you have zucchini instead of cucumber?  Use them instead.  The beauty of cooking is you can change up, you are the cook.

Between the crunch of the cucumber, the juicy sweetness of the tomatoes and the creamy texture of the cheese it is a hit every time.

Okay, I have to admit I love cheese, who does not?  Are you looking to find some quality cheese?  Oliver Farms carries a  full line of Certified Organic Artisanal Raw Milk Cheese.  If you would like to try some of their delicious cheese, they are at the Detroit Eastern Market every Saturday.  Tell them Renee sent you.  Try a free sample, then stock up on your favorites.
