Tomato, Cucumber and Onion Salad

The farmer's markets have so much beautiful, fresh produce right now that I wanted to do a simple salad to go with lunch today. My pictures are blurry today, sorry bout that, but the dish is delicious and fresh.
  •  2 large tomatoes
  • 1 large cucumber
  • 1/2 large sweet onion
  • 4 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • salt and pepper to taste

Peel and remove seeds from cucumber. Slice in half and then cut each half into halves (it's quartered lengthwise), then slice into 1/4 inch thick or a little thicker slices.

In a small bowl mix the vinegar, water, sugar, salt and pepper. Whisk well to dissolve the sugar.

Into a large bowl dice tomato then slice and pull into sections the onions. Add cucumber and stir well. Toss in the dressing and let marinate in the frig for about an hour before serving.

Again, the pics suck today, but the dish is delicious!
