  • About

This is a pretty, lemony dish for summer, with its tumble of red and yellow cherry or pear tomatoes and jade green cucumber.

Look for cucumbers that are seedless and unwaxed. Lemon cucumbers, Japanese cucumbers, Kirbys, or Armenians all have wonderful flavor in the warm months; in the cold months, the slimmer so-called English hydroponics will do.

All of the preparations can be done in advance, leaving only the brief cooking for the last minute.
