There is something refreshing about a salad mixed with cucumber, tomato and herbs…to me it exudes warm weather, memories and cheer. The bites being crispy and refreshing all the way down to the very last fork full.

I usually save the juices at the bottom to dredge some crusty bread through not wanting to waste a single drop.
