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!
