    SarasotaCook's Note:

    Classic and nothing fancy, but a great summertime salad. Growing up in Michigan, we always had a big garden, as well as tons of tomatoes. This became one of my favorite salads. Now, my Mom used to make it with sour cream back in the days ... but nowadays, I use plain yogurt which I think makes it a bit lighter. However, you can still use sour cream or even a mix of the two if you prefer.

      I've been wanting to make this recipe for months and months, but held off, waiting for the 1st of Summer's Fresh tomatoes. I'm SO glad that I waited! This recipe took 15 minutes exactly and was a HUGE hit with my family! I'm embarrassed to admit that I loved the remaining sauce so much, I was dipping my roasted chicken into it. LOL I also believe that this recipe would be STUNNING used on fresh gyros; I'm going to put that to the test next week. Simple. Flavourful. Extremely easy to put together. And if you grow your own tomatoes and cucumbers, the cost to make this would be pennies per serving. I used a micro processor to process the shallot, garlic clove and dill. When finally minced, I added the yogurt (greek-style), sugar and s & p. Blended it for a minute, let it sit while I cored and processed the tomatoes and cucumber. Tossed it in a large bowl and served in individual sauce dishes. Yet another reason why SarasotaCook is my favourite chef at Zaar: her recipes use common ingredients but the flavours explode in your mouth and create happy dining memories. A real keeper of a recipe!

      I served this as a side with our Mother's Day dinner. It was very well received! I loved the fresh taste, crispness of the cucumbers and the lovely scent and taste of the dill. It was healthy, too!

      This salad is very fresh and light, just what I wanted to balance out a meal of grilled barbecue pork ribs. I do like more tang in my dressing, so I prefer to add a little vinegar or lemon juice. Very good!
