Reinvention Queen From Herb Garden to Tomato/Cucumber/Onion Salad

This year we revived the growing fresh herbs in our garden planter and we are reaping the benefits of snipping some herbs and stepping up our kitchen efforts up tremendously. Today, I had fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, and onions and one of my favorites is a salad created with those ingredients, throwing in some black olives and a raid on the herbs in the garden.

Look at the lovely herbs making a great display in the planters. I took this before I clipped some of the ones I planned on using in this salad.
Here are the herbs I chose for the salad. So fresh and fragrant.
Chopping cucumbers, tomatoes, red onions, black olives in bowl is the first step.
The herbs find their way after being chopped or torn into the bowl. I deseeded the cucumbers after peeling them.
I mixed the mayo, the ranch dressing (two types) and added black halved olives, garlic herb seasoning, sea salt and black pepper. When all the flavors blend, it is ready to eat.

Note from Arline Miller: This salad can be made as individually as you like. There is no exact recipe, and other veggies, ingredients and seasonings can be substituted to make this your own. If you make something similar with some different ingredients, please comment and include your special touches.

This salad goes well with Oven Baked Country Ribs and green beans which is our dinner tonight.

  1. I love the idea of an herb garden planter on the deck. We will be adding a deck to the house next year and will do the same.

    Do you do anything special for soil and drainage?

    Fabulous idea!

    1. Thanks and I can assure you will love it. These trays have hole markers that you can drill three holes on each planter for drainage. We use Miracle Slow Releasing potting soil and we placed them close to where the hose is and we water when the soil is dry. We have had a lot of rain so that helps too. Place the planters on the side of the deck where they get some shade as they don’t like full all day sun. Have fun and enjoy those fresh herbs.
