// heirloom tomato = baby watermelon //

heirloom tomatoes from Trader Joe's

So cute. Thought I'd post pics. Ok, as you were...

// cucumber & tomato salad //

I needed a side for my honey-mustard chicken wings. Tweaked some online recipes that I've found to use what I had at home already. Simple and perfect for the hot weather outside. Bring it to a cook-out, dinner party, etc. It's pretty quick and cheap to make.


  • cucumber, sliced and seeded (I used 4 smaller Persian cucumbers. they're just crispier and better)
  • 1/2 onion, yellow sweet, sliced thin
  • 3/4 carton of grape tomatoes (halved) 
  • tablespoons cilantro, fresh chopped
  • tablespoons rice wine vinegar 
  • tablespoons water
  • tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

  • Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. Chill for 30 minutes in the fridge if you have time.
