Cucumber and Tomato Salad

I continue to be amazed at how good greenhouse tomatoes can be. The winter can seem endless in these parts, but a good tomato does  the job of temporary distraction (at least until I peer out the window).

This salad is quick enough, just don't make it too far ahead as tomatoes don't like the fridge for too long.

You Will Need:

2 ripe tomatoes, seeded and cut in whatever shape your heart desires (Personally, I like wedges, but your salad, your rules)
1/2 sweet onion, sliced
1 large cucumber, seeded if not a seedless variety, and thinly sliced.

The Dressing:

4 tablespoons cider vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon celery salt
1 tablespoon chervil
A pinch of tarragon
1/4 teaspoon thyme
1/2 teaspoon dill
A nice big grinding of black pepper
1/2 teaspoon sugar

Mix well, pour over salad and let sit at least ten minutes before serving.

Unfortunately, it is still January...but hey everybody, look...salad!
