  1. Gorgwous salad!You are absolutely right about growing your own basil. I just grew mine in a pot because I would buy a pack in the store and it would just go bad. Now I can just pick what I need. I make all kinds of pesto and salads with it. And I’m not throwing away plastic packaging!

  2. Mmm, those both sound great! I love tomatoes and completely agree that the heirloom ones, or anything locally grown, are much much better than random supermarket tomatoes.

    Here is our current favorite cucumber salad, which can be made with tomatoes or carrots. Recently tried tossing in some garbanzo beans, and that was great, too.

  3. Thanks for linking this up to the Welcome Home Wednesdays link party! YUM! Look at the colors on that salad…it looks so delicious!! Thanks for sharing…we hope to see you again next week!

  4. Thanks for this terrific recipe form heirloom tomatoes and cucumber salad that I pinned. I like to switch things around too. Saw you at the I spotted it on the Healthy, Happy, Green & Natural Party Blog Hop #79. I’m a plant based whole food eater and therefore would prefer this recipe seasoned with nutritional yeast and pumpkin seeds instead of cheese. Hope you’ll check out my post and get social with me.

    1. Thanks for stopping by! I don’t eat cheese often myself. All of the cheese suggestions were completely optional – and, in fact, when I made it and photographed it, there was no cheese. So if you want to give it a try, it will turn out just like the photos ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Thanks Karen. I will try it. My hubby loves tomatoes and I’m sure it will be a big hit with him too.

  5. I bet my brother would love this recipe, I don’t eat tomatoes (I don’t know why but I can’t stand them!) but the little bro adores them. Growing up we would often find him outside eating tomatoes right out of the garden… I don’t think he’s stopped doing that yet! Haha… he probably gets yelled at less though now that he’s grown up and in his own house ;). I will definitely pass this along! Thanks for linking up with us at Welcome Home Wednesdays… can’t wait to see you next week!

  6. This looks absolutely delicious and so healthy. Would love you to come and link up with Real Food Fridays blog hop that goes live every Thursday @ 7pm EST. Sharing – pinned & twitted.
