  • Heirloom (or standard) tomatoes – approximately 1.5 – 2 pounds, sliced into chunks
  • 1/21 English (burpless) cucumber, sliced
  • 4 garlic scapes
  • 2 large leaves of kale, tough spine removed and roughly chopped
  • 6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  1. Place the prepared tomatoes and cucumber in a large serving dish and set aside.
  2. Cut the garlic scapes into a few large pieces and add them to a food processor along with the kale and pulse, then puree for a few minutes.
  3. Add the oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper and continue to puree for a minute or two, scraping down the sides a couple of times to make sure everything is evenly pureed.
  4. Add more salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Toss with tomatoes and cucumbers right before serving. (You may have some left-over dressing depending on how big your salad is and how much dressing you want on it.)
