Cucumber Tomato Salad

We took my brother-in-law and his family to see the Ann Arbor farmer's market. We ended up coming home with raspberries, cucumbers, sweet potatoes, and 3 different kinds of cherry tomatoes. My sister-in-law made this dish to go with our Churrasco Steak dinner and it was delicious (and healthy too)! There's nothing better than veggies that are grown fresh from our local farmers.

Notice the dark red cherry tomatoes. That was the first time I had ever seen anything like it. They, along with the traditional yellow and red cherry tomatoes were so good. I just love popping them straight into my mouth!

5 medium plum tomatoes, halved lengthwise (We used cherry tomatoes)
1/4 red onion, peeled, halved lengthwise, and thinly sliced
1-2 cucumbers, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced
A generous drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil, about 2 T.
2 splashes red wine vinegar
Coarse salt and black pepper

Dress the tomatoes, onions, and cucumber with olive oil, red wine vinegar, salt, and pepper.

Let stand while you prepare dinner, about 20 minutes. Re-toss and serve salad with crusty bread for mopping up juices and oil.
