Cucumbers and Tomatoes Aliñado Topped with Basil Feta

Posted · 13 Comments

The best meals in the summer are the easiest.  With the abundance of fresh produce in my garden and at the farmers market coming up with tantalizing recipes is a snap.  This is a traditional way Spaniards enjoy seasonal cucumbers and tomatoes on hot summer days… aliñado, which simply means in a vinaigrette.  Topped with basil feta from local producer Reichert’s Dairy Air.  A simple dish that will surely please.
