This is a simple and delicious cucumber, tomato and onion salad. The salad is perfectly marinated with olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. This is great as snack or side dish which I normally make at home. There is no hard and fast rule as to what vegetable to add in this. This salad dressing will go with any thing.  It is soeasy to make and very tasty too…
