This classic salad makes the best of summer tomatoes and cucumbers.
2 heirloom tomatoes, cut into bite sized chunks
1 pint cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
2 English cucumbers, peeled and cut into bite sized chunks
1 Tropea onion, peeled and sliced
1 cup Kalamata olives
¾ cup chevre cheese, crumbled
½ cup olive oil
¼ cup red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons fresh herbs of your choice, such as basil, oregano and parsley, stripped of stems and chopped
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper
1. Place the tomatoes, cucumbers and sliced onion in a bowl. Mix in the olives.
2. In a small bowl, whisk together the basil-infused olive oil, vinegar, herbs, and salt and pepper, and pour over the salad to coat. Toss well, then sprinkle with the chevre cheese and season with additional salt and pepper, as needed.
