This Spanish cucumber salad recipes makes 4-6 servings.
Peel cucumber with vegetable peeler or knife. Slice in rounds about 1/8” wide. Cut tomatoes into eight pieces each. Thinly slice red onion into rings. Then, cut the rings in half.
Place all ingredients into a serving bowl. Sprinkle approximately 1/2 teaspoon of salt over the top. Pour 2-3 tablespoons vinegar over vegetables and 6 tablespoons of olive oil. Toss salad and taste. Adjust ingredients to your taste.
Note: It is common to sprinkle cool water into the salad or to put ice cubes in the bowl if it is a very hot day. Either way, the cold water mixes with the oil and vinegar, making more dressing to dip bread!
