Cucumber and tomato country salad - KOAM TV 7

Cucumber and tomato country salad

Delicious and easy, this make-ahead salad complements most all meat, poultry, and seafood.

Preparation time: 20 minutes or less

Servings: 4 - 1 ¼ cup.

5 A Day servings: 3.

Ingredients:

  • 4 ripe medium-sized tomatoes
  • 3 medium cucumbers
  • ½ medium onion
  • ¼ cup white vinegar
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. ground pepper
  • ¼ cup crushed ice or cubes

1. Cut tomatoes into ¾-inch cubes and place in serving bowl. Remove part of the cucumber peel in lengthwise strips. Cut each cucumber into quarters, lengthwise, and then remove extra coarse seeds, if any. Cut into ¾-inch cubes. Cut onion into uniform sized cubes and combine with all vegetables.

2. Mix remaining ingredients, pour over vegetable cubes and toss well to dissolve sugar and salt. Allow to stand for 15 minutes or more to marinate. Serve chilled.


Chef's Notes: This salad holds well up to two days. If this salad is made using a finer dice, it makes for a delicious sandwich filling, heaped on crusty bread.
