Oh boy, summer is here. We are only one week into our summer vacation time and I am already having to double check what the day is. This past Sunday at the farmers market made me realize –– oh, yes, there’s the heat that Texas is known for and it felt like our first real hot day. Hot days call for fresh light salads and cool sweet treats (but I will get to that later). Seeing cucumbers and tomatoes at the market while having a few friends in town and more people over for dinner, we came to the conclusion that we needed a good “make ahead” salad to go with our grilled meats. This easy Cucumber, Tomato & Red Onion Salad with Dilly Vinaigrette was the right choice for the evening –– light, slightly tangy, herbaceous and full of fresh Texas summer goodness.
