Tomato, Onion, and Cucumber Salad


5 medium plum tomatoes, halved lengthwise, seeded, and thinly sliced

1/4 red 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

2 splashes red wine vinegar

Coarse salt and black pepper

Optional: Minced or chopped Basil (to taste)

Optional: 1 thinly sliced red, purple or green pepper


1Dress the tomatoes, onions, and cucumber, (peppers if using) with olive oil, red wine vinegar, salt, and pepper.

2 Let stand while you prepare dinner, about 20 minutes. Re-toss (and add in basil, if using) and serve salad with crusty bread for mopping up juices and oil.
