Tomatoes, Cucumber and Balsamic

And here's salad #2 for the week. 

Just because it's second doesn't mean it's a lesser salad.

It has four ingredients that were meant for each other.

Grape tomatoes.

Cucumber.  Click here to read about the type of cucumber you need and how you should chop it.

Balsamic vinaigrette, made with this:

And blue cheese.
You want the tomatoes and cucumbers to marinate in the dressing for a couple hours before you gobble it up.

And come back tomorrow for my new favorite salad: Edamame Salad with salty feta and sweet dried cranberries and crunchy pine nuts.  And that salad might actually qualify as healthy since it has edamame.

Tomato-Cucumber Salad

1 pint grape tomatoes, sliced in half
1 seedless cucumber, cut into quarters and sliced across into small chunks
1/2 cup balsamic vinaigrette
1/2 cup blue cheese

Combine the tomatoes, cucumber and vinaigrette and allow it to marinate at room temperature for a couple of hours.  Sprinkle the blue cheese on top before serving.
