Just a note on the nutritional information in this salad – since most of the dressing stays in the bowl, the actual calories and fat are lower than stated. It’s doubtful that anyone is going to drink the dressing, so in reality, only a fraction will actually be consumed. My cookbook program, which figures the fat and calories, doesn’t take this fact into account. The bottom line is this: you can eat as much as you want!
5 large tomatoes, sliced, or the equivalent of cherry or grape tomatoes, halved, or a mixture
1 small onion, halved and thinly sliced
1 medium cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced
6 tablespoons white vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil, or vegetable oil
Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste (about 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper)
1/4 teaspoon crushed red hot pepper
- Place the tomatoes, onions, and cucumbers in a serving bowl.
- Mix the remaining ingredients, pour over the tomato mixture, and stir.
- Cover the dish and refrigerate for a few hours to allow for the flavors to blend.
- Stir before serving.
