Marinated Cucumber, Tomato And Onion Salad
Is it possible that three people could devour this entire Marinated Cucumber, Tomato and Onion Salad in one sitting? Yes we did! I love this so much but once again, only with fresh garden veggies. I wish August would never end! All these fresh vegetables are so delicious!
Start by washing the cucumbers and the tomatoes. Peel the cucumbers and slice them in half lengthwise and then into 1/4″ slices.
Peel the onion, slice it in half then slice it into 1/4″ pieces. Separate all of the pieces.
Cut the top off of the tomatoes. Cut them into bite size wedges.
Put the veggies into a large bowl.
Mix the veggies together.
In a medium bowl, mix the marinade ingredients. I used an immersion blender to mix. You can mix any way you would like, even with a whisk.
Pour the marinade over the veggies and mix. 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!
