Tomato-Cucumber Salad

Tomato Cucumber Salad
Note: 

Thanks to our friends Eric and Jessica for this fabulously simple recipe.

Time: 
10 minutes
Ingredients: 
2 medium tomatoes, cut into 1/2" to 1" pieces
1 cucumber, peeled and cut into 1/2" to 1" pieces
1 small clove garlic
1 tbs chopped fresh, basil, chives, oregano (combined to make 1 tbs - leave out anything you don't like)
1 tbs olive oil
1/2 tsp balsamic vinegar (or lemon juice, if you prefer)
salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
Directions: 
  1. Mix all ingredients but tomatoes, cucumbers, salt and pepper in small bowl. Whisk together well, allow to herbs and garlic to infuse the liquids for about 10 minutes.
  2. Place cucumbers and tomatoes in a serving bowl large enough to toss with olive oil mixture.  Drizzle with olive oil mixture and mix or toss to coat everything well.
  3. Salt and pepper to taste, toss again.  Allow tomatoes and cucumbers to sit in dressing for at least another 10 minutes or up to 6 hours in the refrigerator.  Continue to toss periodically, if possible.
