Why This Tomato Cucumber Salad Recipe?
Hello Friends! I hope you are enjoying your week. With the warmer weather, I have been making more salads for a cool lunch idea.
As a child, I remember not really caring for cucumber salads. They were a staple at church gatherings, school functions, and showers, but I didn't really appreciate them until I was grown up and actually liked vegetables!
Fast-forward to now and I really do have a better appreciation for fresh vegetables. This recipe uses bell peppers, but it also works well with mini peppers
