Easy Cucumber, Dill, and Tomato Salad

This is a quick prep salad. However, the veggies will become more flavorful if you let it chill for a few hours, rather than eat it right away. Just relax, play, and give those veggies some time to soak up all the yumminess. Then serve with a slotted spoon so it's not so juicy.

What you need:
1 Roma (Italian) Tomato (or 6-8 cherry tomatoes, sliced in half)
1 medium sized Cucumber
1 tablespoon of Fresh Dill
2 tablespoons of Vinegar (white wine or apple cider)
1 tablespoon of Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
1/2 tablespoon of Water
1/2 teaspoon of sugar (I know some people might bump this up to a teaspoon or more, but just do it to taste.)
1/4 teaspoon of salt

**Optional** Add in a little onion or some black olives.

This recipe will make 2-3 servings.

Step 1. Cut of the cucumber and tomatoes. You can cut them however you'd like.

Step 2. Add in the oil, vinegar, water, dill, and sugar. Stir and put into the fridge to chill. I usually leave it in the fridge for about an hour, you could leave it longer if you'd like.

A variation on this recipe is to skip the olive oil, and instead bump up the vinegar content to 3 tablespoons, and water up to 1 tablespoon.
