Giglio Cool Cucumber Salad

Vinaigrette Dressing

INGREDIENTS

1⁄2 cup medium red Onion

3-4 medium tomatoes

1-2 medium cucumbers

1 cup Olive Oil

1⁄4 cup Aged Balsamic Vinegar

1⁄2 tsp. salt

1⁄4 tsp. Pepper

1⁄4 tsp. Basil

1⁄4 tsp. Oregano(optional)

1 tbsp. Dijon Mustard

 

DIRECTIONS

Slice Cucumbers 1⁄2” thick and cut in half.

Cut Tomato into 3/4 inch pie chunks.

Slice Onion into 1⁄4” slices.

Mix Olive oil, Vinegar, Salt, Pepper, Basil, Oregano, and Dijon Mustard in a mixing *container. Pour over vegetables and chill. After mixing, taste-test your dressing to see if it needs more or less salt, pepper, or vinegar. If the mixture is too salty, vinegary, or peppery, add more olive oil. If the mixture tastes too oily, add more vinegar.

Add the dressing to the salad immediately after shaking it - since oil and vinegar tend to separate. However, don’t add the dressing to the salad more than a couple of minutes before eating it or your lettuce may get soggy.

YIELD: Serves 6

* If you have a salad dressing shaker or a plastic container or jar with a tight-fitting lid, you can also combine the ingredients by pouring them all into the container, fastening the lid on tight, and shaking thoroughly.
