Tomato and Cucumber Salad

This time of year, my garden is overflowing with more than zucchini, peppers and tomatoes which are ripening faster  than I can keep up with.   Here is a picture of what I have been taking from my garden almost daily since mid July:

Now that August is here, the tomatoes are  outnumbering the squash.

When tomatoes  are fresh from the garden they are  perfectly fine just the way they are; but when you mix them with onions and fresh herbs and a little olive oil, yum!      This is a perfect side dish at dinner or  add to a  bed of field greens or arugula for a quick lunch.
