Tomato, Cucumber, Onion Salad

Simple. Refreshing. Healthy. Tasty. In honor of this simple salad, this post will be short and sweet. This salad is a wonderful accompaniment to any dinner. Cool cucumbers, sweet tomatoes and a little oniony bite pair really well together and is a nice departure from a traditional lettuce salad.

Tomato, Cucumber, Onion Salad

1 english cucumber, peeled and diced into quarter inch chunks
1 cup of diced grape tomatoes (or any variety of tomato)
1/4 cup diced white or red onion
2 teaspoons of Italian salad dressing dry mix (I use Good Seasonings)
1 lime, juiced
3 tablespoons olive oil

Whisk dressing mix, lime juice and olive oil together. Toss with chopped veggies. Refrigerate until serving (at least one hour if possible).

You can adjust all the dressing ingredients depending on your taste. I like mine a little on the acidic side.
