Happy Independence Day

So it's a cook out, you forgot you were supposed to bring a salad and no where is open.  What do you make?

Here is a tried and true crowd pleaser and it is likely you have some if not all of these three ingredients on hand.

Cucumber Caprese Salad:
2 Lg. English Cucumbers (I use English/Hothouse Cucs because it saves time on peeling, but use any cucumbers you want, but if you use conventional cucumbers just be sure to peel them.)
1 pkg. of TJs Sun-dried Tomatoes
1 16 oz pkg. of Hormone-free fresh Mozzarella (If you can afford it, Mozzarella di Bufala is the best!)
1/4 cup of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (I prefer a high-quality first cold press Italian Olive Oil but any EVOO will work.)
Salt and Pepper to taste

Simply dice cucumbers and cheese.  Mix all ingredients and serve!  Easy and delicious!
