Tomato Cucumber Salad

Saturday, August 1, 2009

I love tomatoes and cucumbers! ... and broccoli, and mushrooms, and zucchini; Ok, I love most vegetables! This is a quick and easy salad, perfect for summer! I love cold raw vegetables in the summer, they are so refreshing!
Tomorrow we are heading to the lake for a couple days; our last hurrah before going back to work and school. I feel like I've worked the entire summer so it's a little sad going back to work. I really enjoy my job though, I can't wait to catch up with my students and co-workers!

1 large cucumber, peeled and diced
3-4 tomatoes, diced
1/8 cup oil
1/8 cup vinegar
Salt and pepper

Whisk the oil and vinegar until it emulsifies into a smooth sauce. Salt and pepper to taste and add the tomatoes and cucumbers. Personally, I like a lot of salt on my tomatoes. Store in the refrigerator, the salad is best chilled. I have a friend who adds a teaspoon of Dijon mustard to the sauce!

I love this salad and practically live on it when my tomatoes and cucumbers are ready to pick. I also like the addition of chives.
