Re: (Healthy) Recipe Ideas - Memorial Day Edition!

Here's a cool and refreshing side dish for especially hot days. I didn't know what to expect the first time I made this, but it's been a hit at family gatherings ever since.

Tomato, Cucumber, and Red Onion Salad with Mint

 

  • 2 large English hothouse cucumbers
  • 1/3 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 large tomatoes, seeded, coarsely chopped
  • 2/3 cup coarsely chopped red onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh mint
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

 

 

Cut cucumbers in half lengthwise; scrape out seeds. Cut halves diagonally into 1/2-inch-wide pieces. Place in large bowl. Add vinegar, sugar, and salt. Let stand at room temperature 1 hour; toss occasionally.

 

Add tomatoes, red onion, mint, and oil to cucumbers and toss to blend. (Hint: start with about half of the mint, stir, and add more to taste. It's easy to overdo it!). Season salad with salt and pepper. Done!
