Summer Cucumber & Tomato Salad


This is my favorite summer salad, it’s so easy, fresh, cheap & delicious! The longer it sits, the better it gets! You could add feta or mozzarella cheese, bell pepper, a variety of tomatoes or really anything you like. Double it or make a single serving with leftover veggies, the important thing to remember is it’s equal parts sugar, vinegar & oil.

Summer Cucumber & Tomato Salad

What you need;
1 large cucumber
2 medium tomatoes
1 small red onion
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup veg. oil
1/2 tsp black pepper

How to make;
Pour sugar into a bowl, add vinegar and stir. Whisk in oil & add pepper. Chop the cucumber (with or without skin) into about 1 inch chunks. Dice the tomato about the same size. Slice the onion into strips. Mix veggies with wet mixture until coated. Refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight. The longer it sits the better it gets!
