Cucumber & Tomato Salad Recipe



  • 3 medium to large sized tomatoes
  • 2 medium-sized cucumbers
  • 1 medium green pepper
  • 1 medium Vidalia or sweet onion
  • 1/2 cup oil - vegetable or canola
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar 3/4 cup, if you really like vinegar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2-3 tsp. sugar this will vary depending on your taste
  • Salt and pepper to taste



  • First, you'll dice up each of the vegetables and combine in a medium-sized bowl with a tight-fitting lid. (The lid is very important or your refrigerator will smell just like vinegar.)
  • Next, add your oil, vinegar, and water.
  • Then, add your sugar and stir gently. If your family isn't a fan of sweets, add the sugar a teaspoon at a time. Stir and taste before adding more. You want the sugar to dissolve and not settle in the bottom of the bowl.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Refrigerate for a couple of hours before serving. This salad is best served cold.
