This salad combines fresh ingredients and makes a colorful side dish for a barbecue or picnic. I like to chill it a few hours to blend the flavors. Enjoy :lol:


1 medium cucumber, sliced
2 medium yellow summer squash, sliced
2 medium tomatoes, sliced


1/4 cup vegetable oil
3 tablespoons minced fresh basil OR 1 tablespoon dried basil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon peel
1/4 teaspoon salt

Arrange the cucumber, squash and tomatoes on a large serving platter. In a jar with a tight-fitting lid, combine the dressing ingredients; shake well. Drizzle over salad. Serve immediately and Enjoy. 8) [/b]
