Tomato and Cucumber Summer Salad

I attended a cooking class today through the NMSU Valencia county Cooperative Extension service and this is a recipe we made in the class. It is very refreshing and makes a great side dish. You could even serve it with some nice crusty bread for a light lunch. It is best to use vine ripened tomatoes instead of a roma tomato which doesn't have much flavor. I don't like black olives so I leave them out. The cooking time is actually the time it takes to sit before serving. There is no actual cooking.
