This summer salad is a simple mixture of oil, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper along with sliced cucumbers, tomatoes, and onions. I love to serve it really, really cold and will often add ice cubes to it just before serving. So refreshing on a hot summer day!

Cucumbers are so plentiful and inexpensive during the summer months. If you have a vegetable garden, you no doubt have more than you know what to do with. Cucumbers are also amazingly low in calories and have a very high water content. They are a great way to stay hydrated and full during the summer.
