diced fresh tomato
red wine vinegar
diced red onion
salt, or to taste
I love this salad and make it all summer long. I, too, use about half the oil, and I add a little sugar (maybe a teaspoon or two for this amount of veggies) and some chopped fresh oregano and parsley (a tablespoon or so of each--they add eye appeal, too). And I usually do a quick seeding of the tomatoes & cukes with my thumb just to help cut down on the liquid. Goes great with grilled anything!
Simple and pretty little salad that really will complement just about anything. I cut the oil in half to reduce the fat grams with no sacrifice to flavor IMO. There was a lot of juice in the bowl as a result of the cukes and the tomatoes releasing liquid, so I did need a slotted spoon to serve. Next time, I might try squeezing the tomatoes a little to get some of the juice and seeds out and maybe even cut the vinegar back a little. Nothing fancy here, just a nice little salad that is sure to please everybody.
