Cucumber-Basil Dressing

There are many ways to make this cool and refreshing dressing. I like this one when paired with fresh tomatoes, because you get a little crunch from the cucumber slices. Now that summer is close and the tomatoes will be juicy and delicious, serve a platter of fresh tomatoes slices dressed with Cucumber-Basil dressing at your next bbq and enjoy!
