A refreshing and simple summer salad that's perfect for picnics or barbeques. Cucumbers are marinated in red wine vinegar, sugar, salt, chopped tomatoes, red onions, mint, and olive oil; great with a spicy flank steak and potatoes.
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 1/3 cup red wine vinegar
- 1 tablespoon white sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt

- 3 large tomatoes, seeded and chopped
- 2/3 cup chopped red onion
- 1/2 cup chopped fresh mint
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- salt and pepper to taste
In a large bowl, combine vinegar, sugar, and salt. Mix in cucumbers, and marinate 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
