Cold Cucumber Tomato Salad

Cold Cucumber Tomato Salad


For as long as I can remember, a bowl of this salad was kept in the refrigerator in the summer. It was continually replenished as the cucumber and tomato harvest continued.


Yield: 2 cups


2 cucumbers, peeled and sliced


1 large tomato, cut in small wedges


1 small green bell pepper, seeded and julienned


1 small purple onion, peeled and thinly sliced


1/3 cup vegetable oil


3 tablespoons red wine vinegar


3 tablespoons sugar


3/4 teaspoon kosher salt


1/4 teaspoon black pepper


Place the cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers, and onions in a medium bowl. In a small jar with a tight-fitting lid, combine the oil, vinegar, sugar, salt, and pepper. Shake to emulsify and dissolve the sugar.


Pour over the vegetables, tossing gently to coat. Cover and refrigerate at least 3 hours before serving.

  1. This one of my favorite summer salads. My grandmother made this salad and served it ice cold and it was always so refreshing on hot summer days. I had forgotten about this so thanks and I will make this soon with some of my own cucumbers & tomatoes. Thanks.
