If you don't have lime basil, substitute any fresh basil plus 1/2 teaspoon grated lime rind. Plums will also work in place of pluots.
3 tablespoons fresh lime basil, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon champagne vinegar
Dash of kosher salt
Dash of freshly ground black pepper
2 apricots, pitted and cut into thin wedges
2 pluots, pitted and cut into thin wedges
1/2 English cucumber, thinly sliced
How to Make It
Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl; toss to coat well.

Just ok. My apricots were perhaps over-ripe and didn't seem to go well with the rest of the salad. I doubt I'll make it again, as there are better cucumber salads out there. If I did make it again, I'd use nectarines instead of apricots.
Ok, first I'll admit that I substituted everything. Used plums, used nectarines, used thai and regular basil. And rice vinegar instead of champagne. I did have a real english cucumber. The ingredient that makes this salad is the basil! Use lots of it. Other than that, I'd say it was good and a delightfully different way to use up all these cucumbers I have growing. I'm not even sure if I should rate this since I hate it when people change the recipe around :)
