Is it possible that three people could devour this entire Marinated Cucumber, Tomato & Onion Salad in one sitting? Yes we did! I love this so much but mostly with our fresh garden veggies. I wish August would never end! All these fresh vegetables are so delicious!

In a medium bowl, mix the marinade

ingredients. I used an immersion

blender to mix mine. You can mix

anyway you would like,

even with a whisk.

Pour the marinade over the veggies

and toss. Cover and refrigerate for

at least on hour or longer. But honestly,

mine never last that long. We are into

it after 1/2 hour and it’s still delicious!

  1. My grandmother used to keep a perpetual container of this salad in the fridge. As we used it up, she’d just keep adding more
    veggies to the mix, with the original vinegar dressing, which miraculously never seemed to run out. Somehow, like sourdough starter, it just kept replenishing itself!
