We've had a long string of pretty hot days here in DC this summer so my husband and I were grateful we were invited to a poolside party this weekend. Another guest was grilling so I wanted to bring a side dish that was cool and wouldn't be too filling in the heat. A refreshing cucumber salad fit the bill. Mix in some grape tomatoes and fresh mint and you have yourself a easy summer dish.
Cucumber Salad with Tomatoes and Mint
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
1 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
4 large cucumbers, peeled and chopped into bite-size pieces
1/2 cup red onion, chopped
1 pint grape tomatoes
1/3 cup fresh mint, chopped
2 Tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper, to taste
In a bowl, combine red wine vinegar, sugar, and salt.
Stir in cucumbers. Add onion, tomatoes, and mint.
Then, gently toss with olive oil and add salt and pepper to taste.
