Cucumber, Tomato, and Onion Salad

Cucumber, Tomato, and Onion Salad (Serves 3-4)

Summer is beginning to make an appearance and cucumbers and tomatoes are looking good. Combine them with a little onion, oil, and vinegar and you’ve got a great salad. How did I live all winter without this stuff?

Ingredient list:

2 cucumbers
6 Roma tomatoes
1 sweet yellow onion
Apple cider vinegar
Extra virgin olive oil
Garlic powder
Black pepper

Directions: Cut cucumbers in half lengthwise and then slice the halves into bite-sized pieces. Cut tomatoes in half lengthwise and then slice into bite-sized pieces. Chop onion into bite-sized pieces. Combine all of the cucumber and tomatoes in a bowl and add one or two handfuls of chopped onion according to desired taste. Dust the vegetables with salt, garlic powder, and black pepper to taste. I like a nice dusting of each. Add a generous splash of olive oil and apple cider vinegar and stir all ingredients together. Don’t be stingy with the oil or vinegar as they add great taste. Let sit covered in the refrigerator for an hour before serving to let flavors combine.

  1. This sounds wonderful – I wonder if adding a little fresh cilantro would work, or other fresh herb. Thank you for this!
