This dish is made with the vegetables and herbs from our garden, with the exception of the garlic. I'll have to try growing garlic next year, after we make our garden bigger again! I made this last night with just the tomatoes and served it on top of sardines, it was quite good. I liked it so much that I made it again today and added cucumbers from our neighbor's garden and served it on top of millet burgers (without the hot sauce). It'd also be good served with fish or chicken or on top of pasta or rice.
large handful of cherry tomatoes, rinsed
1 large pickling cucumber, rinsed
several fresh basil leaves, rinsed
a couple of sprigs of parsley, rinsed
1 large clove garlic, minced
splash of red wine vinegar
salt and pepper to taste
Chop the tomatoes into eights and place into a bowl. Cut the cucumber into quarters, then dice them and add them to the tomatoes. Shake the water off the basil and parsley, coarsely chop and add to the veggies in the bowl. Add the minced garlic, drizzle a couple of tablespoons of olive oil over all and add a splash of red wine vinegar. Toss to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serves 2.
