Tomatoes and Cukes
Sometimes, simple is best. That's how I feel about this quick and refreshing summertime salad - a delightful dressing lets the garden-fresh vegetables star. It takes only a few minutes to arrange the slices attractively on a bed of lettuce. -Dorothy Bateman, Carver, Massachusetts

I like the flavors of this. I used red wine vinegar and added a few slivers of white onion for a bolder taste. I served it on a bed of spinach. Can't wait to have the rest tomorrow.
