With several cucumbers and tomatoes waiting on my counter this morning, it was time to make a salad. I wanted something different, so I scanned a couple cookbooks looking for a new dressing to try. I found this vinaigrette recipe and suspected we would like it.
This salad was spicy and tangy and different from anything I'd tried in the past. My husband really liked it and my oldest son even requested more of it later as a snack. I'm thinking that we'll be making this again in the near future.
Cucumber Salad with Spicy Tomato Vinaigrette
vinaigrette recipe adapted from Cooking Light Complete Cookbook
3 medium size cucumbers, halved, seeded and thinly sliced
6 medium size Roma tomatoes
1/3 red onion, very thinly sliced
3 tablespoons tomato juice
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce, I used Sriracha
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Combine cucumbers, tomatoes and onion in a large bowl. Whisk together the remaining ingredients. Pour over the vegetables and toss well to combine. Chill in the fridge for at least an hour before serving. Enjoy!
