Tomato Cucumber Salad with Spicy Vinaigrette

This is a really great recipe on a hot summer day. Goes well with grilled corn.


3 huge garden beefsteak tomatoes
1/2 cucumber, peeled
6 red onion slices

1/3 cup XV olive oil
2 tbs. fresh lime juice
1 tbs. red wine vinegar
1 clove garlic, chopped fine
1/3 cup washed cilantro leaves
1 tsp. honey
Hot pepper sauce
Pinch of salt
Fresh ground black pepper


Slice tomatoes, cucumber and onion.

Combine all other ingredients in a food processor and puree. Pour mixture over the salad in a nice serving dish and place in fridge, covered for 3 hours. Serve.

Serves 4-6.

Side note: Tomatoes don’t do well when stored in the fridge overnight… they get tasteless and mushy. Try to use them up the day they were prepared.
