DIRECTIONS

  • Peel the cucumber. Sometimes we just dragged a fork down the unpeeled cucumber over and over to create a striped design. Chop the cucumber into quarter-inch pieces. We always included the seeds in the regular cucumbers, but nowadays, chefs would probably leave them out.
  • Combine the cucumber, vinegar and chives in a medium bowl. My mother used plain white vinegar, but you may wish to experiment with one of the many vinegar varieties.
  • Chop the tomato into roughly the same size pieces as the cucumber pieces. Add to the bowl and salt to taste.
  • Refrigerate about 4 hours until nicely chilled and serve with a slotted spoon.
