Cucumber & Cherry Tomato Salad

This simple, fresh, and natural cucumber and cherry tomato salad is the perfect lunch on hot summer days. Topped with feta cheese and homemade dressing.

There is nothing better on a hot day than this salad.  It is cool, refreshing, and tastes like summer.  It is also surprisingly filling.  I’ve been eating this for lunches at work because of the surplus of cherry tomatoes and cucumbers in the garden right now.  This salad with a big bowl of local watermelon on the side… you will be in your happy place.  And stuffed.  But also super happy and ready to take on the 90 degree temps we have been having all week.  Recipes like this prove again that eating simple, fresh, and natural foods does NOT have to be boring or taste bland.  Please don’t think that is ever the case!  This is packed with flavor and is totally good for you!

Cucumber and Dill Dip

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you know I recently fell into a large amount of dill.  And by fell into, I mean I saw it at the farmers market and had to buy it!  It was only $2.99 and almost as tall as I am!  So expect a few dill themed recipes coming your way!  Are you ready?  Because here is the first one.  And fair warning, it is addicting.  Like I-wish-I-would-have-quadrupled-the-recipe addicting.  But unfortunately, I only had a single cucumber ready to be picked on my plants in the garden, so I will have to wait a bit to make it again.
