Cucumber Tomato Salad
1 English cucumber, peeled, sliced and cut into bite size pieces
3-5 Ripe tomatoes (depending on size), cut into bite size pieces
1/4 Sweet onion cut into small pieces
1/4 Cup olive oil
3 Tablespoons white wine vinegar
1/2 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
1-2 Tablespoons fresh herbs – I used oregano because it doesn’t have a strong flavor that would overpower tomatoes and cucumbers.
Salt and Pepper to taste
Mix vegetables in a medium size plastic or glass bowl. In another small bowl, mix dressing ingredients with a whisk.
Pour dressing over vegetables and refrigerate for one-plus hours before serving. It’s better if it’s refrigerated overnight. Enjoy.
