Cucumber Tomato Salad

28 Jul

If you are like me and have tons of cucumbers and tomatoes right now from your garden, then this is the recipe for you! I remember my grandmother making something similar to this when I was growing up. She would slice cucumbers and onions very thin and soak them in a combination of vinegar and sugar. I used to love when she would make this for me! The longer this salad marinates, the more the flavors really penetrate the vegetables. What can I say, this is perfect for a hot summer day.
