TOMATO CUCUMBER SALAD
THE TOMATO CUCUMBER SALAD!
Everyone most likely has their own version of this salad,
but I make mine very similar to
The Divine Miss M....with a bit more kick!
By request, this is Estelle's version of this fresh and tangy delight!
5-6 Roma Tomatoes
1 large cucumber
Red Wine Vinegar
Salt and Pepper
Red Pepper Flakes
Dice the tomatoes.
Peel and dice the cucumber.
Mix together and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
(We love lots of Peppah!)
Sprinkle with red pepper flakes....maybe 1-3 teaspoons
depending on how much of kick you prefer.
Sprinkle with olive oil, 2-3 teaspoons.
Add the red wine vinegar....1/8 to 1/4 cup.
Allow to marinate for about 30 minutes in
the refrigerator. Serve immediately.
Now your measurements may vary depending on taste.
Be cautious not to add too much oil or vinegar.
You want a very light flavor.
