Cucumber Tomato and Onion Salad

A classic tomato salad with sweet onion and cucumber and a nicely balanced vinegar based dressing.

Cucumber Tomato and Onion Salad


I love cucumber, tomato and onion salad combinations and I eat them constantly over these hot summers, so I am always playing around with them.

It's pretty amazing how subtle changes in the same basic ingredients can completely alter the texture and taste in them and the dressing on this one is a great balance between tart and sweet to me.

Social Media Roundup Cookout Menu Ideas 3


Summer cookouts are in full swing, so we've been sharing on our social media some of those favorite beverages, salads, sides, mains and desserts that we all love to have when it's cookout time - even, yes, for those of us who don't really cook outside much!

We share regularly on social media during the week, but unfortunately, algorithms keep a lot of those posts hidden from our members there - even those who have actively "liked" the page! I've starting duplicating some of those shares in roundups right here on my website to let you know what you may have missed.

Johnny Marzetti Casserole - My Way

My version of Johnny Marzetti, a well-loved baked casserole originating in Ohio, made with ground beef and pork, the trinity of southern cooking, tomato soup, mushrooms, egg noodles and cheese.

I know, I know... it's HOT! But this is one of my favorite casseroles to make, and I've made it twice here recently, so yeah, I'm sharing it, right in the heat of the summer.

Besides, it's a terrific potluck carry too that everybody enjoys.

There is something about the combination of textures and flavors here that make this an outstanding meal anytime of the year and perfect if you have a countertop oven (#ad), which is what I use the most these days anyway, especially in the summer.

Purple hull peas are my favorite southern pea!

They are part of the group of peas, that are really beans, and something that we love so much in the South. It's a summer favorite among many of us.

They are easy to grow too and easier to shell than they used to be when an afternoon of shelling once yielded sore and purple fingers!
