  • 2 vine-ripened tomatoes
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1/2 small yellow onion
  • 1/3 cup distilled vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano


  • Slice the tomatoes into 1" chunks. Cut the cucumber length-wise, then slice into 1" chunks. Thinly slice the onion.
  • Whisk the remaining ingredients in a large bowl to make the dressing.
  • Add the tomatoes, cucumber, and onions to the bowl and toss to coat.
  • Let sit for at least an hour before serving, although it's best if left overnight in the fridge and then served chilled.
