Hey friends!  I hope you’re having a great summer.  I know I’ve been missing for a while and I’m so sorry.  Life took over and challenged me with some big events.  I’ll share that story shortly but in the mean time, if you are looking for a delicious salad that’s loaded with all the fresh flavors of summer…well, here it is!
Tomato Cucumber Summer Salad | A Southern Soul
I made this dish a few weeks ago for a big event in our neighborhood and I served it at our 4th of July celebration.  Both times it was a huge hit.  It’s simple, beautiful and is perfect for outdoor dining.  I hope you’ll head out to your local farmers market and pick up some vine ripe tomatoes, fresh cucumbers & onions and make this incredible fresh summer salad!
