Cucumber & Tomato Salad

In the spring I visited my son Cory, and he introduced me to Blue Apron meal delivery service.  The Sumac-Spiced Salmon he made for us was outstanding.  Recently he sent me an invitation to try Blue Apron and they sent me one free delivery of 3 meals for 2 people.  One of the meals was for Empanadas de Picadillo with Tomato-Cucumber Salad and Lime Creme’ Fraiche.

Please forgive me for posting another salad recipe  on the heels of this Family Favorite Fresh Vegetable Salad!  But it is garden season in the USA and the vegetable stands and farmer’s markets are brimming with fresh vegetables like juicy wonderful tomatoes and sweet tasty cucumbers.

This may be a no-brainer salad for you but for me it shocked my shoes off!  I have never made a vegetable salad that is dressed with only a little olive oil, salt, and pepper!  Yep, that’s right – never.  In my mind, the vegetables need a little help dressing – like a bottle of salad dressing, a creamy homemade dressing, or something more than olive oil, salt and pepper and a squeeze of lime juice
