Cucumbers and Tomatoes
« on: July 21, 2021, 04:49:40 PM »
What ya all doing with your harvest ? One of the things we do is seed and chunk the cucumbers and tomatoes, equal parts, then add small cubes of sharp cheddar cheese and toss in the fridge. A bit of sea salt and cracked black at serving time  :tup: Makes for a nice cold side dish.
Wife's been playing with adding chopped olives. Or chopped sweet peppers and oil and vinegar dressing. Not a fan there but experimenting is a good thing yes?
She also slices a bunch of cuc's and onions and soaks them over night in salt water,  drains, mixes up a vinegar/water solution and soaks them in that in the fridge for a day. Good stuff.
What you got ?

Some similar things . Cukes,tomatoes,fresh basil,olive oil, salt,pepper,pinch of sugar , little red wine vinegar,and fresh mozzarella balls .

Another . cukes,walla walla onoin, seasoned rice vinegar, little water, dash of salt.let set for a few hours to overnight

I havent made these in awhile but used to all the time. Might have to make one as it sounds pretty good . Veggie sandwiches . Bread of choice (I prefer homemade white or real whole wheat) generous slather of mayo on both slices of bread, cukes,tomatoe, walla wallas , leaf lettuce and a thick slice of sharp cheddar .

Fried green tomatoes are a must every year for me.

I also do about the same, sometimes use feta cheese too.  I can alot of tomatoes into salsa, juice etc and eat a lot of fresh cukes or cukes, onions with vinegar and sour cream etc.  There is also the inevitable run of BLT's that I cant avoid.  :chuckle: its hard to beat the fresh vegetables this time of year

I 2nd the rice vinegar as well. Bruschetta and fresh marinara sauce starts rearing itís head at our house around this time as well.
$5 is a lot of money if you ain't got it

I inevitably have more tomatoes than I can eat which means I've gotta try some way to preserve them. I've tried tomato sauce, but I think my favorite approach so far is just to slice them, dehydrate, and put into gallon freezer bags that I keep in the freezer.  Then in the winter throw them into a venison chili.
