Tomato, Cucumber, and Onion Salad

in #dlive3 years ago

Right now is peak harvest season in most of the Northern hemisphere. Garden fresh vegetables are the best! Fresh veggies from a farmers market are a close second. Fruits and vegetables in supermarkets are usually picked before they're ripe, and aged for a while. They also spray some produce with preservative wax and/or growth inhibitors. Fresh, vine ripe, and organic is what the human body needs.

Cucumbers and tomatoes are both vine fruit. The definition of a fruit is the seed producing edible part of a plant. Onions are a root vegetable, and they're a bit more difficult to grow. Vinegar and olive oil are both natural preservatives. Salt also acts as a preservative by removing the water in the vegetables which makes mold harder to form. I called everything vegetables because in a salad, that's what they are.

INGREDIENTS

1 cucumber

3 plum tomatoes

1 small red onion

A splash of red wine vinegar

A splash of extra virgin olive oil

Sea salt
Black pepper

DIRECTIONS

Slice the tomatoes, cucumber, and onion like shown in the video and thumbnail.

Add all the ingredients to a bowl and mix.

It's that easy!

I have many reedited videos for DLive on queue including a Cheesesteak Hoagie and Tuscan Soup. I have brand new videos with too long versions for YouTube just to promote Steem; and shorter versions with typed recipes for DLive/Steem including Thai Tom Yum Soup, how to make your own Almond Milk with no preservatives, and Vietnamese Banh Mi; and more, coming this month. As always, if you like my videos, please follow. -Ed

I love the partial peeling of the cukes, not a fan of raw onion here but my boyfriend loves it so we have been marinating them on the side. I also notice you don’t use a ton which I could probably handle it.

Thnx Ed, yum :). Im wanting to start a compost. Not sure my setup yet.
