Cucumber Tomato “Snappy” Thanksgiving Salad


The funny thing about us foodies is that the minute one holiday ends, it’s right on to the next! When it comes to the Thanksgiving, I don’t think there is ANYTHING that is more important than some easy side dishes. All lined up on the big table, waiting to be nibbled on. What I love most about my “Cucumber Tomato Snappy Thanksgiving Salad,” is that there is no need to worry about warming it up or cooling it down; room temperature is just perfect. Wait, scratch that! My favorite part of this salad is that it can be made way in advance. One thing less thing to worry about on Turkey Day!


4 cucumbers peeled and sliced
1 pound cherry tomatoes
1 white small white onion sliced thinly
½ cup white vinegar
¼ cup sugar
½ teaspoon salt


1.) In a medium sized bowl mix onions and cucumbers. Slice tomatoes in half.


2.) Combine vinegar, salt and sugar in a smaller bowl until all is dissolved.
3.) Pour marinade over the vegetables and refrigerate for at least one hour.


4.) Remove and add tomatoes. Garnish with parsley and serve.
