Cucumber Tomato Salad

This recipe for Cucumber Salad first appeared to me in a Southern Living magazine that I had picked up at a yard sale one summer.  Since that time I've made this recipe dozens of times and it has become a tried and true family favorite. Perfect for when your garden is filled with cucumbers and tomatoes. 

Cucumber Tomato Salad


2 cucumbers
1 large tomato
1 small red bell pepper
1 small purple onion
1/3 cup vegetable oil
3 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper


Cut cucumbers and remove seeds with a spoon.
Chop cucumber, tomato, bell pepper, and onion.
Whisk together oil and next 4 ingredients in a large bowl until sugar dissolves. 
(I put the dressing ingredients in a jar & shake well)
Add cucumber mixture, tossing to coat. 
Cover and chill 3 hours.

“Use it up, wear it out, make it do, do without.”
