I grew up marinating cucumbers, onions, and tomatoes every summer as a side dish. Always a great side to a summertime meal.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Anyone who grew up around a garden or a family member that gardened grew up on tomato, cucumber, and onion salad. It's a must-have summertime side dish. Angie's dressing is perfect with the right balance of tangy and sweet. Sometimes we think these salads are a little too tangy, but this one is just right. Tastes like pure summer.
