Tomato, Cucumber and Onion Salad


The summertime fills your garden with an abundance of fresh tomatoes and cucumbers. I love a good salad from the garden filled with tomatoes, cucumbers and onion with or without a dressing. This salad is very adaptable, you could also add mushrooms, avocados, raw squash, bell pepper, add and delete to get the flavors you desire.

Tomatoes come in lots of different colors and it really adds to the eye appeal of your salads.

This salad is especially delicious with barbecue, fried chicken, pork chops and chicken fried venison. These are just some of my favorite, it would really go well with about any meat.
