Tomato, Cucumber and Onion Salad

Summer time is my favorite time of year. Super fresh, ripe and yummy veggies fill the supermarket and farm stands. There is always an over abundance of tomatoes floating around and since I love a red juicy tomato, this salad is perfect for me. Very few ingredients, and very simple to make, make it a go to recipe when you need a quick dish to serve with your burgers or grilled chicken.

What You Need:

2 medium to large vine ripened tomatoes
1/2 English cucumber (the ones that come wrapped in plastic)
1 small yellow onion, very thinly sliced
1/2 c apple cider vinegar
salt and pepper
a few sprigs of fresh oregano (optional)

What To Do:

Place the onion slices in a bowl and cover with the apple cider vinegar. Let sit for 1o minutes. This take the bite out of the onion and almost pickles it. Cut your cucumber in half long ways, then in half again long ways. Then cut into 1/2 inch to 1 inch chunks. Cut your tomatoes into quarters. Cut each quarter in half again to make 8ths and then cut in half the other way to make chunks. If using the oregano, remove the leaves from the stems. If they’re small, toss them in whole, if not tear them into smaller pieces. Toss everything together in a bowl and season with some salt and pepper. Let sit for roughly 10 minutes or so to let the flavors meld.
