Cucumber & Tomato Salad

My family had the opportunity to travel around the world when I was younger.  When we were in Switzerland visiting some friends, an older couple, she made this dish for us.  At that point I was going into 4th grade and didn't care much for the onions, but ate everything else.  Now that I am older, I am enjoying and eating the onions in this dish.  :-)  My mom always told me that when we get older we like more foods than we do when we are younger.  It is true!  Yet I can't bring myself to like sauerkraut, lima beans, or sweet potatoes.  Maybe when I am 60!  It is one that taste better the longer everything is together.  So make it ahead if you are having it for dinner or taking it to a potluck!  And for those of you that are growing gardens, like we are, you will have all these things on hand. 

3 small Cucumbers
3 small Tomatoes
1 small Onion
1 tsp Salt
Dash of Pepper
1/2 tsp Garlic Salt
3 or 4 Tbsp Vegetable Oil
3 or 4 Tbsp White Vinegar
2 Tbsp Sugar
Some Parsley
Mix all these ingredients together.  And add seasonings to your taste.

Note: You don't want to use Olive Oil for this recipe.  It doesn't have the flavor that it does with vegetable Oil.  I tried it a while back and the flavor just wasn't there.  Also, White Vinegar is better than the apple cider vinegar, again because of taste.
