Tomato - Cucumber Salad With Fresh Basil

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by S. Merrill

My mom sent me this recipe a few weeks ago and just in time as I had a large quantity of fresh tomatoes to use, and I was running out of ideas. It is simple and delicious. The salad serves two, but could easily be doubled.

This was very nice. The one thing I changed, was to dice the tomatoes. Very refreshing on a hot day. :)
