    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.

    Have always enjoyed cucumber and tomato combos - this one no exception! Used little red onion rings, made up a red wine vinaigrette,and snipped in basil fresh from the garden for a wonderful side dish. Now to wait for my tomatoes and cucumbers ... that will need an extra star!Thank you for another of your recipes that make for a winner at our house. Made for the Auz/NZ August Swap.
