I was raised in New Orleans, and this is a staple at any time of the year!! We tossed the salad and let marinade overnight in the fridge....oh, and we also added fresh mushrooms, quartered, to the mix and, then marinate.
Summer Tomato, Onion & Cucumber Salad
From EatingWell: July/August 2011
Fresh wedges of tomato, thinly sliced onion and sliced cucumber dressed simply with vinegar and oil makes the most simple salad possible—think of it as the Southern counterpart to the classic Italian tomato-and-mozzarella salad. It is best enjoyed at the height of summer, when tomatoes and cucumbers are fresh from the garden.
9 Reviews for Summer Tomato, Onion & Cucumber Salad
Absolutely love this salad! It tastes like summer and is so simple to make. I like to use roma tomatoes and english cucumber and typically use green onions or chives as the herb. Yum!
My mother made this for years, since I was a little kid. She just used apple cider vinegar and a little water to dilute the vinegar then poured it over the tomato wedges, onion and cukes. Anyway you want to make it, it's great.
I just love this easy to make recipe. It does taste better when served at room temp but sometimes I don't do that and it is still good. I sure wish we could get Vadalis all year but I take advantage of them when we can and substitute red onion when we can't. I also change out the vinegars to try new tastes and also use this type of dressing for other salads I make.
This recipe is not only easy to make, but it's light and delicious. The perfect summer salad that can go with everything from chicken to fish. I followed the recipe exactly, and it brought rave reviews from family and friends at our picnic. Nothing was left in a large double bowl! I love recipes that make me look good; both in shape and in the kitchen!
