Tomato Cucumber Salad

Last week Caroline and I were trying to think of a good side to go with this fish dish when we decided to post this recipe (which I sometimes don't consider to be a real recipe because it's ridiculously easy). But we both had a sneaky suspicion that we had posted it before. We spent the next several minutes perusing through our blog trying to find this salad..and couldn't find it. So naturally we decided to put it up since everyone should have a quick go-to salad.

But then this morning I accidentally set this to post in 2008 rather than 2009, went hunting for it on our blog history, and found the same recipe (with minor variations) posted just this past June! The horror of a duplicated recipe!

I decided to leave it up for two reasons: (1) The pictures are much better on this one than the one from June. (2) It's a good salad and you may have forgotten about it or never tried it on the original posting. So here's your chance!

Tomato Cucumber Salad

Serves 4

1 medium cucumber, very thinly sliced
2 medium tomatoes, cut into 1 inch chunks
2 tablespoons red onion, thinly sliced
3-4 tablespoons apple cider vinegar*
1 tablespoon freshly chopped basil
salt and pepper, to taste
  1. In a medium bowl, mix all ingredients together. Stir well and let sit 5-10 minutes. Serve.
*If you find the flavor of the vinegar to be too strong, add 1 tablespoon water. You can also use white vinegar, though I prefer the apple cider.

It's a great Summer salad, very refreshing! The French have a close version to it, although they add a tablespoon of olive oil.

hhmmmmm, I think I found my after "work" snack! The timing couldn't be more perfect. I'm literally starving and I have all of those ingredients in my fridge right this minute.
