We’re lucky enough to have several friends who have had overflowing gardens this summer. We’ve helped them use up veggies that would have otherwise gone to waste, and that’s a pretty great thing! It’s a nice way to make super fresh side dishes.
For this particular salad, I mixed the cucumbers and onion from my friend’s garden with some fresh herbs from mine. The result was a deliciously crunchy salad that was bursting with the flavors of summer.
