When I was a kid, my grandparents grew vegetables in their garden and there was nothing like the taste of fresh veggies right off of the vine.

I spent many summer evenings having dinner with my grandparents since they lived right behind us.

We often had fresh cucumbers and tomatoes with an amazing meal cooked by my grandma from scratch. I cherish those memories.

This recipe is great for family gatherings and creating new memories.
