Marinated Cucumbers, Onions, and Tomatoes Recipe

This cucumber, onion, and tomato salad not only tantalizes your taste buds but also adds a dash of color and nutrition to your summer meals. Enjoy the simplicity and freshness with every bite!


  • 1 cup water
  • ½ cup distilled white vinegar
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
  • 3 cucumbers, peeled and sliced 1/4-inch thick
  • 3 tomatoes, cut into wedges
  • 1 onion, sliced and separated into rings


  1. Prepare the Ingredients: Begin by gathering all your ingredients so that you have everything close at hand.
  2. Mix the Dressing: In a large bowl, whisk together the water, vinegar, oil, sugar, salt, and pepper until smooth. This creates the marinating liquid that will infuse the salad with its tangy flavor.
  3. Add the Vegetables: Add the sliced cucumbers, tomato wedges, and onion rings to the bowl. Stir everything together to ensure the vegetables are evenly coated with the dressing.
  4. Marinate: Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. This chilling period allows the flavors to meld beautifully, enhancing the overall taste of the salad.
  5. Enjoy: Once marinated to perfection, serve the salad chilled. It’s a refreshing addition to any meal, providing a cool, crisp contrast to grilled dishes or a light accompaniment to your summer spreads.
