Easy and refreshing, this quick salad recipe is great for summer. I love to mix up the tomatoes for a unique twist. It takes just 5 minutes to prepare and is big on tangy flavor. Include it at your next BBQ!
Tomato Cucumber and Onion Salad
Approximately 1 pound of tomatoes (I like small heirloom tomatoes, combined with grape and cherry tomatoes, quartered or halved lengthwise depending on the size)
1/4 red onion (or sweet Maui Onion) peeled, halved lengthwise, and thinly sliced
1 Kirby cucumber, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced
A generous drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil, about 2 tablespoons
1 splashes red wine vinegar
1 splash of apple cider vinegar
Coarse salt and black pepper
Dress the tomatoes, onions, and cucumber with olive oil, vinegars, salt, and pepper.
Let stand to allow onions to mellow and flavors to blend, about 20 minutes. Re-toss and serve salad with crusty bread for mopping up juices and oil.
