How to make it

  • Mix the balsamic vinegar, olive oil and sugar together and put in the refrigerator to chill for about 30 minutes or so. Mine ended up chilling for about an hour.
  • Slice the tomatoes and cut the cucumber into bite sized pieces. Add the basil and pour the dressing on. Toss and serve.
  • I like the chilled dressing on top of the still-warm-from-the-garden ingredients. I think next time I will put some red onion in this.

    Very fresh! I liked the slight sweetness that the sugar gives the balsamic vinegar. Nice and easy. Good recipe! I did add a bit of red onion too actually and it was nice.

    I've seen the plants for lemon cucumber but never got them when I was planting. I don't see them in stores but I'm saving this for next year when I plant cucumbers again! I'm giving into my curiosity! Looks so good Frankie!
