This salad is a fresh side dish for any summer bbq potluck or just a healthy side kick for your meaty component. My Mom had an over abundant tomato garden and we had to get creative with them! So it's fair to say and I grew up eating a ton of this with every meal, but it is still one of my favorite salads. —Dee

In This Recipe
Cut the tomatoes and cucumber into bite size pieces-the more color varieties the better!
Dice shallot/onion and add to mix.
Finely chop cilantro and set aside.
In a separate bowl, mix lemon juice, and fish sauce (which I highly recommend for flavor. However, salt can be used)
Pour dressing over salad and top with cilantro. Mix well and serve chilled!
**Add a thinly diced jalapeño for a kick!**
