This dish is the perfect summer side. It’s easy, colorful, make-ahead and, most importantly, delicious! I like to pack it up and take along to the beach or on a picnic, serve alongside ribs, or make a batch to take into work to have for lunch for the week. If enjoying for lunch, you could add shredded chicken, or boiled shrimp, to make it a little more hearty, or serve alongside a summer soup or salad.

I love summer. The abundance of fresh vegetables are so pleasing to the palate. This little salad is great to serve on a weeknight with homemade pizza, or nice enough to serve alongside a holiday dinner. This dish really adds color to your plate — whatever the occasion.
Tomato, Onion & Cucumber Salad
1 red onion, sliced
2 cucumbers, sliced
3 Roma tomatoes, sliced
1 TBS EVOO
1.5 TBS vinegar (anything works, red, white, balsamic — here I used Tarragon Vinegar)
Salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste
Toss everything together and refrigerate for at least an hour. Served chilled.
