Great little healthy side salad for a cook-out or picnic. For the oil & vinegar dressing, I used Newman's Own Olive Oil & Vinegar Salad Dressing, which is what they tested with. Very tasty...From Southern Living Magazine, June 2008. Prep time is cook time.
- 1 seedless cucumber, sliced
- 1⁄2 small onion, thinly sliced
- 2 cups small vine-ripened tomatoes, quartered
- 1⁄4 cup olive oil and vinegar dressing
- 1⁄2 teaspoon lemon zest
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- fresh ground black pepper
- Put sliced vegetables in a medium bowl.
- Mix dressing ingredients and toss to coat veggies.
- TIP: Grape or cherry tomatoes (halved) may be substituted.
I have made this several times, and each time I have thoroughly enjoyed it! it doesn't last too long in the house, but I do have to say that everyone appreciates it.
Wonderful! This was so easy to put together and tasted sooo good. I used cherry tomatoes, red onion, minced garlic and my own oil and vinegar dressing. I let it chill for 4 hours before eating it. It was perfect!! Thanks for sharing. Made for Football Pool 2010. Congrats, FloridaNative!!!
So nice and quick to put together, although I confess to waiting until I could get some really fine tomatoes to make this outstanding, and it was! I love salads like this, and believe this could be my whole meal, right here!! I recommend using some Vidalia Sweet Onions, and I used my homemade Auntie Ann's Lip Smackin' Homemade French Dressing - Longmeadow, to dress over the salad. I let sit during the afternoon hours, and served well chilled, talk about smakin' your lips! With delight! A 100% glorious salad, will make again, and often!
