Cucumber, Tomato and Dill Salad

Sometimes, you just want some crisp, raw vegetables with a bite. And this salad delivers. Plus, it's so easy to put together you don't really have to think ahead; just pull a couple of veggies out of the crisper and any well-stocked pantry will guide you home. 

Total Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Cook Time: 0 minutes!

What you will need:

2-3 salad cucumbers (always try and pick skinnier cucumbers, as they have smaller and fewer seeds)
6-7 cherry tomatoes (any tomato really works in this dish, just whatever you have on hand)
1/4 red onion (I omitted it because when I cut into it, it had already sprouted but I didn't miss it!)
1 1/2 tbsp olive oil (not pictured)
2 tbsp white vinegar
sea salt, black pepper to taste
dill OR cumin (depending on what taste you want--it can also be fresh or dried dill, depending on what you have on hand)

This is super simple. Dice your cucumbers and tomatoes into small chunks.

Add to a bowl, then add vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper to taste. Depending on what type of seasoning you want for your salad, use either cumin to taste or dill to taste. If you have fresh dill, it tastes great, but dried dill does the trick just as well. If you have ten minutes to let it marinate together on your counter, you'll be even happier! Then, just serve and enjoy!
