Tomato, Cucumber and Blue Cheese Salad #SundaySupper

Welcome to Sunday Supper.  I haven't had an opportunity to participate with this great group for a few  weeks and I am happy to be back today.

This week's party we are celebrating Independence Day with recipes that are Red, White and Blue. You will find tons of great ideas for your celebration on Tuesday, the 4th of July.

I have shared several great patriotic recipes in the past including:

This great fruit salad

This trifle


This pie

Today I decided to share something savory as I hadn't yet done that.  This isn't so much a recipe as a composed salad, using tomatoes for the red, peeled cucumbers for the white and blue cheese for the blue.  

Season with some salt and pepper, drizzle with some good olive oil (I used basil infused) and some aged balsamic vinegar.  You have a quick, easy and delicious side dish for whatever you are serving up for your Independence Day get together.  

Check out all the other great Red White and Blue creations following these simple instructions for my salad.
