I'm making a similar salad right now... minus the sugar and in place of the vinegar I use ranch dressing. It's a great salad.

At first I thought using so much water would be a bad idea, but I decided to go ahead and just follow the recipe. I LOVED IT!!! The flavor is so tasty (assuming you like vinegar) and I found that I even liked slurping up the juice along with the crunchy parts. I will definitely make this again and again. Thank you so much!

I love this salad. It's perfect for summertime and is a great way to eat up those fresh tomatoes out of the garden.

Just what the doctor ordered! My dear mom used to make something similar to this when I was a child and I've tried repeatedly to replicate it with no luck. Then my brother shared this recipe with me and it's perfect. Enough said.

I Like the ingredients but instead of vinegar I add a small amount of lo-cal.Italian dressing,it is not so tart with a light dressing,actually any light dressing would do,good recipe.

I was searching for a cucumber tomato salad on line and this one came up. I thought I'd give it a try. I didn't have green onions so,I used a sweet onion instead. Very delicious!! I would make again!

This is so good and easy to make, not too strong. My husband asked me to make it much more often this summer with our veggies from the garden. It's very versatile also.
