1 large tomato
1 medium cucumber
1 small onion, sliced & ringed
1/4 c white vinegar

salt & pepper to taste
Dice tomato, peel & slice cucumber, slice onion, pull rings apart, add vinegar, sugar , water, salt and pepper, Mix Let set 3 hours prior to serving. This can be doubled or tripled if desired.

  1. Isn't that a great name? Thanks for participating in Vintage Recipe Thursday.

  2. Hi Annie, I like how you call it, Thunder and Lightning. We used to do this when I was in the Philippines but without the tomato. Of course you can always play with your imagination. Will try your version. Thanks for stopping by my site today.

  3. this sounds like a lovely dish to make in the heat of summer. The ingredients could be fresh from the garden or fresh from the farmers market.

  4. Thank you for sharing this nice recipe. I wonder if I can still have a decent size of cucumber from our garden. Thank you for visiting us!

  5. Sounds like something my MIL makes during the summer. Only she skips the tomatoes and we just call it cucumber salad. But I like your name better!

  6. This is a great post for me to find as I'm on a serious salad kick right now.

    Thanks for sharing at the hearth and soul hop.
