Summa Time, the Livin's Easy...

Friday night my husband and I had a paleolicious tailgate before the John Butler Trio concert at Red Rocks Ampitheater.  What was on the menu?  Steaks grilled on the campstove, a growler of fresh brewed beer from the local brewery, and a homemade "caprese" salad.  

I know that traditionally, caprese salad contains mozzarella cheese.  Since we don't do dairy, we tried a new spin on an old classic.  This was really my inspiration for the salad.  Looking at the ingredients, it will sound strange, but the ingredients couple together in a wonderful way.  Your welcome in advance for this.  

Grilling steaks!

Cucumber Tomato Salad
3 roma tomatoes, sliced
1 cucumber, sliced into quarters
4-5 fresh basil leaves, torn into pieces
1 lemon, squeezed
1 Tbsp. olive oil
freshly ground pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients together for an amazing salad.
