I certainly am on a theme of stuffing various produce with other food aren’t I?  First strawberries, then pears, and now cucumbers, haha.

This was a quick little salad I whipped up for an afternoon snack/light meal.  This is very easy, and only a few ingredients – cucumbers, tomatoes, mozzarella, onion, salt, pepper, oil and balsamic.  That’s it!  It’s a simple dish, that highlights some of the fresh produce in season right now.  Oh and cheese, because cheese makes just about everything awesome in my opinion :)

Photography Note –
I took these pictures instead in the sRGB space rather than the AdobeRGB space, and still the same issue of desaturation when published on the blog.  I can particularly tell here with the red in the tomatoes.  They really were red, trust me!  I think I am going to take others’ suggestions from twitter and comments and see if hosting my photos elsewhere like flickr (and not wordpress) will help.  We’ll see. It’s going to take some time before that can happen though, so until then, you may just have to trust me that photos are more vibrant than they appear!  Ok, that was corny, I know.  Sometimes that’s just my humor, lol.  Maybe I’ll just completely oversaturate all my photos and then they may turn out how they should on the web. ha.
