Cucumber & Tomato Summer Salad

tomato cucumber salad


2 large cucumbers (hot house are fine)
2 large tomatoes (or a pint of cherry/grape)
1 red onion
1/2 cup olive oil
1 cup red wine vinegar
salt and pepper


Peel cucumber (if you have hot house, you can leave the skin on), cut cucumber in half and with a small spoon scrap out the seeds. Slice the cucumber and toss it into a bowl. Cut the tomatoes into chunks (or in half for cherry/grape tomatoes) and cut the red onion in half and then slice thin and add to bowl with cucumber and tomato. In a separate bowl mix oil and vinegar and pour over cucumber mixture.

Add salt and pepper to taste.
Let sit for at least an hour – the longer the better.

Serve as a side dish with your favorite summer meals or in some feta cheese or chicken to make it a meal of it’s own!
