Salad Cravings...

So I'm having my first "pregnancy cravings" and it's something that's somewhat healthy! Tomato, cucumber and onion salad with dill! So yummy and last night after work, I went straight to the grocery and bought all the things to make it, came home and chopped and mixed and sat and ate a bowl of it warm! As though who have had this, we all know that it's best to be served cold and after letting everything marinate for a couple of hours!

For the salad I made, I only used 3 tomatoes and 1 cucumber and I also added dill to mine to give just a little more flavor. This is a recipe that you can easily alter to suit your taste and there's a ton of them out there if you don't like this one.

4 lg. tomatoes, cut into wedges
2 cucumbers, peeled & cubed
1 lg. Red onion, peeled & sliced
1/2 c. olive or salad oil
1/4 c. cider vinegar
1 tbsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
Dill to taste

Put prepared vegetables in large salad bowl. In smaller bowl combine remaining ingredients with wire whip until salt and sugar dissolve. Pour dressing over vegetables and let stand in refrigerator about 2 hours before serving for best flavor.
