Favorite summer quick salad

I have fresh basil galore right now so I’m cutting and drying most. What I don’t dry I use in our all time quick summer salad. It is simple, quick and goes with just about anything. (Disclaimer; cooking is not something I enjoy and I don’t think I’m all that good at it).
I do enjoy cooking  when I know all our kids and the grand magnificents  will be at the table than I really do enjoy the labor of it all. Other than that, cooking is just one of those things I do to keep us alive. On to the recipe.
3 main ingredients:
fresh tomatoes (garden raised are the best) thanks Daddy-O,  sweet onion, and fresh basil.IMG_0758
I slice the tomatoes and dice the onions,
Wash, stack and slice the fresh basil…..yum.
Chop the basil (this is probably a culinary faux-pax)
Add a kosher salt, fresh ground pepper, garlic powder, balsamic vinegar and olive oil (didn’t make the photo shoot, oops)
Toss and savor the summer flavors!
One of the few things I’ll miss about the summer.
Stay tuned…..


  1. YUM, three of my favorite things. This sounds and looks delicious.

  2. Come February I really miss this easy-peasy summer delight.
    Thanks for stopping by.
