A WONDERFUL side dish to have with any meal and especially when the homegrown tomatoes and cucumbers are in season. Simple and easy preparation. Note that another choice of salad dressing is great when using this recipe.

A nice side dish! I did add the onion and used Good Season's Italian dressing which I made with red wine vinegar. I also added some red peppers which were a nice addition. Thanks for sharing this low cal side dish :) Made for Aus/NZ Recipe Swap March 2010.

My mum used to make a similar tomato, cucumber and onion salad which we all loved. I loved the addition of the sugar and the basil leaves to finish. I made a simple oil and red wine vinaigrette of my own with a good grinding of black pepper in it.
