  • 2 tbsp. red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • ¾ tsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tsp. dried herbs

Notes

1. Use only fresh green cucumber and ripe tomatoes.
2. You can use any herbs that you like.
3. Marinating the salad in the dressing makes it very flavourful.
4. Serve the salad chilled.
5. You can store leftovers in the fridge for a day but not too long as it does taste best fresh. 6. You can also use a tsp. of chopped fresh herbs like dill, cilantro or basil. 7. You could use balsamic vinegar or apple cider vinegar in place of red wine vinegar. They taste equally good.
