Too Damned Easy Cucumber Tomato Salad

     This is the point in the summer where we start trying to use our garden produce in vast quantities. That's where the wife's recipe for cucumber tomato salad comes into play. This recipe couldn't be any more simple. Just about any tomato will work, but we have been using these orange tomatoes since they are super sweet and mild.

Too Damned Easy
Cucumber Tomato Salad
  • 2-3 large cucumbers, sliced
  • 1 large onion, cut into about 1” pieces
  • 3-4 tomatoes of your choosing, sliced
  • 1 cup white vinegar 
  • ¾ cup water 
  • ¾ cup sugar (or six packets of your favorite carcinogenic sweetener)
  • 1 teaspoon salt 
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper 
  • dash cayenne pepper 
  • dash parsley 
  • dash basil
  1. Mix vinaigrette ingredients in large bowl until sugar is dissolved. 
  2. Add vegetables. 
  3. Let marinate in refrigerator 1-2 hours.
Good times!

  1. Very timely. My kitchen counter is full of tomatoes and crisper drawer has cucumbers from my garden. I'll be making this tonight. Thanks for co-hosting the party. I already follow you on Facebook.
