Cucumber and Tomato Salad

By Monica Resinger

I have an excess of tomatoes and cucumbers from the garden right now, so came up with this delicious salad. It makes a great side dish to any meal... we had it with fried oysters and garlic bread. You can expand upon this recipe with the addition of chopped onions and make it bigger by doubling or tripling the ingredients.

Cucumber and Tomato Salad

1 Cucumber, thinly sliced
1 Tomato, diced
1 small Garlic Clove, minced
1 Tbsp. Dijon Mustard
1 Tbsp. Red Wine Vinegar
2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper to taste

Put cucumber and tomato into a medium bowl and toss gently. In another bowl, add the minced garlic clove, Dijon mustard, and red wine vinegar; mix with a fork. Slowly drizzle olive oil into other dressing ingredients and whip with a fork to combine. Add salt and pepper to taste, then pour over the cucumber and tomato mixture and gently toss to combine. 4 small servings.
