Grandma Felicia’s Heirloom Tomato & Cucumber Salad

 

My grandparents had lush gardens that yielded an abundant amount of sweet vine ripened fruits and vegetables, including several varieties of tomatoes each year. Growing up Grandma Felicia’s Heirloom Tomato & Cucumber Salad made its way onto the table countless times, throughout the summer months. She cleverly paired this simplistic side salad with her famous unconventional sweet non acidic dressing. Her “Sweet Olive Oil Dressing”, perfectly balanced the flavors of the vine ripened Heirloom tomatoes, crisp cucumber and pungent red onion and oregano.  Make sure you serve the salad with a crusty wedge of Italian bread, so you can use the wedge of crusty bread to dip in the extra salad dressing left behind in the plate…we Sicilians call this act of dipping “Abbagnari” …Trust me on this one “a piece of Italian Bread soaked in this sweet dressing is Incredibly Delicious!
