With all this hot weather, cool, refreshing salads are a staple for us for meals. This one always comes to mind this time of year, because it was my grandma's standby all summer long. We always had a big garden, so this was a daily addition to her menu starting in late July.
Our tomatoes and cucumbers are not quite ready to be picked yet, but you can get them at the Farmer's Market, fresh and local already this year. It is simple, and quick to prepare.
Creamy Cucumber Tomato Salad
4 Roma tomatoes, diced
1 English cucumber, peeled and diced
1/2 small onion, thinly sliced
3/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Mix all the ingredients together, and chill for 1 hour before serving.
