Tomato, Cucumber and Onion Salad

For the salad:
1/2 onion, sliced very thin
6-8 tomatoes of various shapes and colors, cut into wedges
2 cucumbers, washed and sliced into rounds
Small handful each of fresh basil and mint, roughly chopped

For the dressing:
1/2 clove garlic, minced
1 t. Dijon mustard
1 T. fresh lemon juice
1 T. fig balsamic vinegar
1 T. balsamic vinegar
3 T. olive oil
Salt & pepper

Put onion in a small bowl and cover with ice water; let soak at least 1/2 hour. (This will make the raw onion less offensive to eat.) Drain, and put into a large salad bowl with the other salad ingredients.

Combine the dressing ingredients in a small Rubbermaid container and shake until itís emulsified. Taste and adjust seasoning until youíre happy with it. Pour over the salad, toss, and let it sit for 20 minutes or so, stirring occasionally.

Serves 4
