Tomato Cucumber Onion Salad

Who doesn’t enjoy a chilled salad made from fresh ingredients?
This is one of my favorites and is an easy dish to make.


1 cup diced cucumber
1 cup diced fresh tomato
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup diced red onion (I like onions so I usually add 1/4 cup of Vidalia onion as well.)
1 teaspoon white pepper
salt to taste


Cilantro, basil, or parsley to garnish

Toss cucumber, tomato, olive oil, red wine vinegar, red onion, and white pepper together in a large bowl; season with salt. Garnish as desired. Refrigerate until slightly chilled, 10 to 15 minutes.
