Cucumbers on the grill?

Absolutely! They’re even better when freshly picked from your organic garden.

Today’s recipe pairs English cucumbers with juicy tomatoes, and prep time is minimal. Use a grill basket to prevent veggies from slipping through the grate.

All of the ingredients should be available at a well-stocked natural and organic food store.

Warm Tomato and Cucumber Salad 

4 tomatoes

1 English cucumber

Olive-oil nonstick cooking spray

Salt and pepper, to taste

Salad greens

Your favorite Italian dressing

  1. Cut tomatoes into wedges.
  2. Slice cucumber into 1/2-inch slices.
  3. Spray veggies generously with olive-oil nonstick cooking spray for extra flavor and browning. Spray grill basket, as well.
  4. Place vegetables in basket. Grill until lightly browned, tossing occasionally, about 4 minutes.
  5. Season with salt and pepper, if desired. Toss with salad greens and Italian dressing.
