Tomato salad with Cucumber Slaw

這道菜的誕生是一件還蠻奇妙的際遇. . . 記得那天天氣有點炎熱 想吃點清爽的口味 但又不想做沙拉 所以就開始翻冰箱裡的蔬菜: 找到了番茄 胡蘿蔔 小黃瓜 還有芥蘭 和一些零碎的調味料 所做出來的就是這個:(將將將將)

Tomato Salad with Cucumber Honey-mustard Slaw

1 tomato, sliced

1/4 cucumber, cut into cubes

1/4 carrot, shredded

For the tomato:

1/3 tsp olive oil ( just for the flavour of olive oil that's all)

1/2 tsp basalmic vinegar

a pinch of rosemary

Mix the olive oil and basalmic vinegar. Thoroughly coat the slices of tomato with the mixture. Let sit (for soaking up flavour) then add the pinch of rosemary

For cucumber and carrot:

Fat-free honey mustard dressing

When I made this, i didn't have it, so:

2 tsp honey (melted)

1 tsp mustard

Mix well honey and mustard, then add to the carrot and cucumber mixture in a bowl; continue to mix well. Add salt and pepper to taste

This salad is my own invention; so simple and easy, but refreshing and cool.

To serve:

place a slice of tomato on a place. Add a spoonful of cucumber slaw, then top off with another slice of tomato. Drizzle some remaining basalmic vinegar/olive oil mixture around the tomato for presentation!

Bon appetit!
