{Spiral Cucumber Salad with Tomatoes}

I am seriously in love with my sisters spiral veggie cutter (check it out here)!  I used it to make zoodles for this delicious "pasta" recipe and I used it last night to make this fresh and summery cucumber salad! I am obsessed!  I have already thought of about a million ways to use this ingenious kitchen gadget!  

This salad screams summer to me and the best part about it was I used all local farmers market produce!  Side note, can you believe that this past Saturday was the first time I had been to the farmers market all summer?  I know... its sad and I am embarrassed to admit that!  We can talk about my laziness later.  Right now we need to talk about this salad and how simple yet delicious it is!  The simple dressing gives a hint of flavor to the fresh cut cucumbers and the fresh tomatoes add texture and more flavor!  A little salt and pepper help amp up the flavor without taking away from the produce!  Make as a side dish or enjoy as part of a light lunch!
