Fresh from the Garden Summertime Cucumber Salad

We tried a garden again down here in the hard clay. It turned out not too badly this time. Although the weeds and grass are slowly taking over now and the deer in the area have now found it. They seem to like the squash leaves, the pepper leaves and the canteloup really well. One of them must not like the actual peppers, found a big bite out of one and the chunck taken out was on the ground along with the pepper. So I cleaned the pepper and our dog, Jackson, got that one. He loves peppers.

So, anyway, we had lotsa cucumbers. They do like to hide beneath those leaves. Salad time...

1 medium cucumber, peeled, sliced lengthwise in quarters, then the quarters sliced.
1/2 onion chopped
1 medium red tomato chopped to small bite size pieces
salt and pepper to taste
dill weed
pomegranite infused red wine vinegar

Mix them all together and taste. Don't make your salad swim in the vinegar, just use enough to coat everything after you stir it all up and then maybe add a little more for good measure. If you need more salt, add it, etc. Cover the bowl and let it sit in the fridge for a few hours before eating. Overnight would be good. Stir to re-mix it all before serving. Hubby liked this pretty well. Happy Chowing Down!!  :)
