Tomato and Cucumber Salad

A family favorite recipe:  

3 c. peeled and chopped cucumber, bite size pieces
3 c. chopped tomatoes, bit size pieces
1 sweet onion, diced
Salt & pepper
1 c. sugar
1 c. vinegar (reg. rice, apple)

Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl and refrigerate.  Let sit at least an hour for the flavors to blend.  Taste to see if you need more vinegar or sugar.  This should be a sweet tart mixture.

We like to double the recipe.

Nicole loves this salad but when she found out it had all the sugar in it, she said “no wonder I like it.”

Kelly likes to add a few red pepper flakes in her salad and she uses Splenda to reduce the calories and carbohydrates so that should help Nicole out.

Larry does not like cucumbers so when I make this salad I don’t have to share, but it still does not last.
