Cucumber tomato salad



Last night was my night to cook and with working these days I try to find things that taste good yet doesn't take me forever to prepare.  This is a quick light salad packed with lots of flavor.  I made bratwurst, roasted green beans and potato salad to go with this salad.  For dessert we had a selection of fruits.  Give this salad a try, I think you'll really enjoy it.

These photo's were taken with my new Canon camera, just love it.  Bought it for our trip to New Orleans, it takes wonderful pictures.  It's a canon S120.  Takes awesome video too.  Will share some of the pictures from New Orleans shortly.


3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon sugar
3 cucumbers, peeled and thinly sliced (about 2 lbs)
1 (10 oz) container grape tomatoes, sliced in half
1/2 medium Vidalia onion, very thinly sliced into half moons
2 tablespoons dill, chopped
kosher salt, to taste
black pepper, freshly ground, to taste

In a large bowl, whisk together the vinegar, olive oil and sugar.
Slice the onions and place them in a bowl with ice and water, let soak for about 10 minutes, this will take the bite out of them.  Peel the cucumbers, cut in half and then scoop out the seeds.  Slice.  I cut the cherry tomatoes in circles.
Toss in the cucumbers, tomatoes, onion and dill, and season with salt and pepper. Let marinate at room temperature for 20 minutes before serving.

Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful weekend and Always rememeber to Find the Time to Do ALL the Things YOU L♥ve.
