#3683 - Sour Tomato Salad

(by Shirley McNevich)

3 cucumbers (washed, peeled and sliced)
1 onion (peeled, sliced, then quarter the slices and separate them)
3 tomatoes (washed, sliced, then cut slices into strips)
1/2 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup white sugar
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. fresh ground black pepper
1/4 cup canola oil

In a small bowl add cider vinegar, white sugar, salt, black pepper and canola oil--stir well. Taste--adjust as necessary (more white sugar if too sour; more cider vinegar if too sweet). In a large bowl add cucumber slices, onions and tomato strips--toss with your hands to mix. Pour the vinegar mixture over the cucumber mixture--stir well. If you don't have enough liquid, re-make a second batch of the vinegar/white sugar/salt/pepper/canola oil mixture, pour it into the cucumber mixture and stir well. Cover and refrigerate a few hours before serving, but refrigerating overnight is preferable.
