Recipe by Dani San Filippo

Demonstrated at the Decatur Farmers Market on June 18, 2016

This recipe is great to make in bulk for summer potluck parties! It also keeps really well for 2 days or until the cucumbers begin to over-soften, because the longer it sits, the more the flavors marinate!



  • 5 Medium-large tomatoes
  • 1 Large cucumber
  • 1-2 Small onions
  • Approximately 2-3 tablespoons salt and seasoning of choice
  • Olive oil
  • Red wine vinegar
  • Crusty bread



  1. Slice onions and place in a jar with red wine vinegar for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, chop tomatoes and cucumbers and place in bowl with olive oil.
  3. Season with your favorite spices (thyme, basil, oregano all taste great here!) and salt.
  4. Add in onions and about 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar (or more to taste). Let sit for at least 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  5. Stir and serve with crusty bread slice to soak up the yummy juices!
