Happy Friday! I thought I would share a quick recipe with you all today. I threw together this Tomato Cucumber Basil Salad on the Fourth of July and it turned out to be pretty darn good.

Honestly, it is not the most appetizing in appearance but the flavors blend together so well to create a fresh and healthy dish. This salad would be perfect to take to any BBQ, Cookout, Pool Party, or to just eat at home. The longer the flavors marinate together — the better the taste of the salad.
