cucumber and mozzarella salad


For the first time this year, I decided to plant in my vegetable garden, a couple of different varieties of tomatoes, two kinds that I haven’t  eaten before, YELLOW cherry tomatoes (even if they look orange) and BLACK tomatoes . I had the inspiration when I was watching an old Jamie Oliver program, he created a fantastic salad combining many varieties of tomatoes. Anyway, all this  is to tell you that finally my new tomatoes are ready. In this salad I thought to use the yellow cherry tomatoes,  then I add another new entry from my vegetable garden. … a WHITE cucumber. So I continued to make this salad, basing my decision only on the colors! In fact I believe that  a good combination of colors  can be very important for the success of a dish. Finally I added 4 walnuts.  In fact , I’d like to be more precise about this and tell you that actually ,the walnuts are those  from our tree ,last year. They had been left in an old basket in the garden, defenseless against attack from  sun ,rain and wild boars. To be honest , I was very surprised they were still good. Indeed  , 4 out of four of the nuts  were excellent!     I close this weeks blog with this fresh cucumber and mozzarella salad and wish everyone a cool and good weekend. Ciao
