It’s getting hotter every day here in Houston. Maybe I notice it more now that my air conditioner in my car is no longer working. Yeah, that’s right! I thought Houston traffic was bad, try sitting in it with no a/c. No worries, I’m getting it fixed right away. Luckily I had this for lunch to keep me hydrated and refreshed. An easy cucumber and tomato salad recipe, perfect for these hot summer days.
Easy Cucumber & Tomato Salad Recipe
Something I also noticed about this heat is that, I’m craving more raw foods. Watermelons, tomatoes, cucumber, pineapple, cantaloupe and of course figs are a lot of my summer favorites. The sad thing is that my farmers market is closing for a few months. So me and my husband did what any high raw vegan would do. We went and bought as much as we could of all the things we love.
We have been putting to good use all their amazing produce. One being this awesome salad!!! It’s so simple and refreshing, perfect to beat the scorching summer heat, and it gets better as it sits!Print
