Fresh Tomato and Cucumber Salad

I had been looking forward to bible study for several days when I found myself standing in the kitchen just a couple hours before as it dawned on me that I had prepared no food for the lunch we always have afterward.  It was also the day I usually go to the grocery store in the afternoon, so supplies were low. God always provides, even when we aren't on top of things so every thing I needed had to be here already. A friend had given me some ripe tomatoes, there was a cucumber in the fridge, some feta, a can of olives...
3-4 large tomatoes
1 cucumber
1 can black olives
3-4 oz. feta cheese, crumbled
2 tablespoons basil
2 tablespoons parsley
1 small onion
1/2 small lemon
3-5 tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Chop the tomatoes and cucumber in bite sized chunks.

Slice the onion very thinly.
Mince the basil and parsley.
Add all these to a serving bowl. Toss with the juice of the lemon, salt and pepper, black olives, olive oil, and feta cheese. 

 Toss to combine then refrigerate until ready to serve.
Fresh and healthy!
