Tomato & Cucumber Salad

We are in a homegrown tomato overload situation, here...not complaining.  I love our tomatoes.  This year a Brandywine Heirloom tomato plant has been the star producer.  It's loaded and shows no signs of ceasing, even in our triple digit heat.  Our parsley is still hanging on, too.

With our bounty we created this salad to accompany our dinner, the other night.

Here's what you will need to put this fresh and healthy salad together.

Ingredients
Tomatoes, as many as you see fit to serve your family (I used between 8-10 smallish tomatoes), seeded and chopped
1 medium cucumber, chopped in large chunks
a handful of fresh parsley, rinsed, patted dry, and chopped
1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled
6 pats of soft goat cheese
salt and black pepper to taste
2 to 3 lugs olive oil, I use extra virgin

Directions
Combine all ingredients up to oil.  Drizzle olive oil over the salad and toss to coat.  You may add green onion and/or Kalamata olives; if you have them, each would be a nice addition.

I was intrigued by your "name" and am here from Martha's blog. Now I see that you are a southern kitchen witch. What could be better?

We are still waiting on homegrown tomatoes in Chicagoland. As a southerner, I'm used to having them much earlier.

Best,
Bonnie

That salad looks delicious! Glad your Brandywine's are producing. I didn't even get a bloom on mine. My winners this year were Celebrity & Park's Whopper.

Oh how I envy your tomato overload! My first two are just getting red and my suspicion is a bug may have gotten to the ripest one. Enjoy yours:@)

No need to convince me - I know it's a wonderful salad :)
It's almost a regular salad with family

Gotta love recipes that use so much homegrown goodness. I also love that you used both feta and goat cheese! Thank you for linking! Have a great week.

I usually have tomatoes and cukes, if nothing else so a salad like this happens. This is my perfect lunch.

If you have a moment, would you be kind enough to link this to the Recipe Box?
