Cucumber Salad
This is a great change of pace and one that I LOVE during the summer! I just thought of making it recently, so here you go! And pictured shows fresh basil instead of red onion. Make it your own!

6 Roma tomatoes, sliced 1/4 inch thick
4 Cucumbers, peeled, sliced 1/4 inch thick
1 Container Feta Cheese, crumbled
1 Small red onion, sliced very thin or chopped fine
Salt & Pepper to Taste
1 tbsp. Italian or Greek Seasonings (such as basil, oregano, rosemary, etc).
Red Wine Vinegar and Extra Virgin Olive Oil - 1 part vinegar to 3 part oil ratio for vinaigrette

Combine sliced cucumbers, tomatoes, red onion and Feta cheese in large bowl. Add salt, pepper to taste. Add seasonings and toss into salad.

Make a vinaigrette with red wine vinegar and olive oil, about 1/2 to 3/4 cup. Use a 1part vinegar to 3 parts olive oil ratio, or a cruet dressing measure.

Pour onto salad and toss to coat. Serve immediately or chill in refrigerator to cool.
