Hey there, Oh My! Creative friends. My name is Katie and I am the blogger behind The Casual Craftlete. I am SO excited to share my Tomato Cucumber and Onion Salad with you today! It’s a refreshing summer salad made with veggies from the garden.
As a kid growing up in Southern Illinois I can always remember my Dad having a garden in our backyard. My mom made this salad a lot in the summertime with the veggies from the garden. Now that I’m married and moved half an hour away, I don’t have a garden of my own but I am lucky enough to have fresh fruits, produce and local farms close to home. Fresh veggies are what really makes this recipe so amazing.
First, you want to start by chopping the veggies. I used 4 tomatoes, 3 cucumbers and 1 white onion. Make sure to peel the cucumbers and onion before chopping. Then, place the cut veggies into a large bowl. In a separate bowl, mix together 3/4 cup apple cider vinegar, 1 tablespoon salt and 1 tablespoon sugar. Pour the liquid over the veggies and let sit awhile so the veggies can soak up the juice. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for a couple of days.
This cucumber tomato and onion salad is the perfect side dish for your summer bbq’s!
