Pine Nut, Tomato and Cucumber salad

Can't get enough of salads, neither can I. Nor can I ever say no to delicious fresh picked tomatoes. Ah, this tomato and cucumber salad capture the essence of summer, cool, crisp and fresh. I've added a little spice and crunch to the mix creating a refreshing salad that compliments meat or fish.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound tomatoes, thinly sliced crosswise
  • 1 pound gourmet cherry tomatoes, slice in quarters
  • 1 thinly sliced English cucumber
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 2 medium scallions, dark green parts only, thinly sliced
  • 1 medium jalapeno chile, thinly sliced crosswise
  • 2 teaspoons toasted pine nuts
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


Preparation

Arrange tomato and cucumber slices on a platter. Whisk together soy sauce, vinegar, olive oil, and sugar in a small bowl until sugar dissolves. Drizzle dressing over tomatoes and cucumbers, and top with scallions, chile, and pine nuts . Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Serve immediately. Can be made a day ahead. Refrigerate until serving then drizzle with dressing. 

Enjoy!
