I’m not quite sure why it’s not called a Tomato, Onion, & Cucumber Salad considering onions are in it too but, nevertheless, it’s a favorite around here and an easy to one to make!
Per my mother’s advice, I used a a big mason jar to give it “the look”. Of course I was unable to find a lid and had to transform into MacGyver for a minute but no problemo for this girlio. I simply placed a plastic wrap sheet on the top of the jar and stretched a rubberband around to seal it;) My mom should really get her own food blog…she would make it wonderful!
Salads increase in popularity over the summer because they’re a cool, healthy dish that’s easy to make and serve. I personally don’t like onions or cucumbers so this isn’t one of my faves. I am picky though and am trusting everyone else’s tastebuds on this dish. They praise it every time, unless they’re just stroking my ego???
- 4 medium tomatoes diced or sliced the way you want them
- 2 medium cucumbers, peeled & sliced
- 2 onions, sliced and separated into rings
- 2 Tbsp. Vinegar
- 1/4 c. Oil, I used Olive Oil
- 2 Tbsp. Sugar
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. black pepper
- 2 tsp. minced fresh parsley. I used the jar because I NEVER have fresh herbs on hand :/
Set aside your cut up tomatoes, cucumbers & onions. In your bowl or mason jar, pour in the remaining ingredients and mix or shake. Throw in your maters,
cumbers, and onions into the jar with the mixture and toss around until mixed good. Marinate 2hrs before serving. I ususally marinate one hour on the table at room temperature and one hour in the frig!
