How to Make Marinated Cucumbers, Onions, and Tomatoes

1. To start the recipe, get a large bowl and mix all the ingredients.

2. And please toss well to mix.

3. Finally, refrigerate for at least 120 minutes before serving.

Enjoy !


Sugar – For sweeter brine add more tablespoons of sugar.

Vinegar – I used apple cider vinegar but feel free to use stronger vinegar such as white vinegar or milder (rice vinegar or wine vinegar).

More veg – Add red or yellow or green bell peppers.

Choose ripe tomatoes and cucumbers. The fantastic flavor of this juicy salad comes entirely from top-quality produce.

Garnish differently – we like fresh dill, thyme, rosemary, chives, parsley, or oregano.

Cheese – a sprinkle of feta, goat cheese, diced fresh mozzarella, or shaved Parmesan adds a delightful finishing touch.

Try this salad also with an easy Greek dressing.
