The Best Summer Salad in 7 Steps

Ever finish your salad and your left with a bowl full of lettuce? I pick out the good stuff and eat around the lettuce, so skip it! Who says your salad needs lettuce!?

Since it’s hotter than Zac Efron in a Speedo outside, Patrick and I have been hooked on Hometeam BBQ’s tomato cucumber salad because it’s both refreshing and bursting with flavor.

Feeling ambitious, tonight I tried to *recreate* it, and tbh I got pretty damn close.

Follow these 7 steps to an easy side for any summer BBQ:

Step 1: Chop up grape tomato, red onion, cucumber and throw it in a medium bowl
