|Ingredients for Salad Dressing|
|Finely Chopping Herbs|
|Chopped Herbs with Vinegar|
|Salad Dressing Pour|
|Tomato Salad with Cucumbers, and Red Onions|
Chef Ben Bebenroth finely chops and crushes the fresh herbs, so the oils release and the flavors of ginger, basil, garlic, and mint merge together. He then adds a vinegar, which he made from remnants of left over beer to the mix, along with oil and salt. The dressing is poured it over ripe, end of the summer tomatoes, cucumbers and red onions.
