My family recently just discovered our love for mini cucumbers!  Does your family eat them?  They are especially perfect in the summer time and my boys can’t get enough of them.

The last time I was at Trader Joe’s I picked up a couple of bags of cucumber and some gorgeous grape tomatoes.  I started growing my own basil this summer and I knew I had a perfect salad in the making.

It took no time at all to chop and slice the veggies and basil.  Wait to chop the basil until the very last minute because it tends to turn black on the edges.

Recipes like this one are good when eaten right way, but so much better if they can sit and chill out in the fridge for a few hours like this Tomato Mozzarella Pasta Salad.  The flavors get a change to marinate together and become one delicious salad!
