Marinated Cucumber Onion and Tomato Salad


  • 3 cucumbers, halved, seeded and sliced into 1/4 inch pieces
  • 1 large red onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 3 large ripe tomatoes, quartered
  • 1/2 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • kosher salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup chopped parsley
This sounds like a super simple salad, but the combination of white wine vinegar, along with the sugar and extra virgin olive oil makes it very special.

  • Cut the cucumbers, tomatoes and onions and add to a large bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, add the sugar, wine vinegar, and water, the drizzle in the olive oil, while whisking.
  • Add the parsley to the dressing, then season with salt and pepper and whisk again.
  • Taste dressing for seasoning and adjust if necessary.
  • Pour the dressing over the vegetables and gently combine well.
  • Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving, as well as gently tossing every 1/2 hour.
