Summer Cucumber and Herb Salad

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.
