You can call it what you want, but I call it, "My Sister Susan's Summer Salad!" Say that three times in a row! This is great for those warm summer days, and it's very healthy. If you don't have your own garden, try to visit a local farmer's market to purchase these ingredients. It just taste so much better.
1 cup water
1/2 cup distilled white vinegar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup sugar or Splenda (to taste)
2 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon fresh, coarsely ground black pepper
3 cucumbers, scrapped with a fork so some of the skin is left on and sliced 1/4-inch thick
1/2 cup red or green bell peppers
3 tomatoes, cut into wedges
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
1 cup broccoli tips
1 onion, sliced and separated into rings
Whisk water, vinegar, oil, sugar, salt, and pepper together in a large bowl until smooth; add cucumbers, tomatoes, and onion and stir to coat.
Cover bowl with plastic wrap; refrigerate at least 2 hours. However, it is even better if it sits over night. *Recipe By Susan Farley
