Summer Salad

Daniel made this salad during the first year that we were dating, it must have impressed the family because he is still around. It's simple and easy to throw together and most importantly it goes great with all of your summer functions.

Daniel's Cucumber and Tomato Salad

2 lg. cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced
2 pints of cherry tomatoes, halved
1 red onion, cut in half and then sliced
1 16oz. bottle of Italian dressing

1.) Throw ingredients into a medium sized bowl and gently toss until dressing has coated everything.
2.) Refrigerate for 3-4 hours to allow the ingredients to marinate.

*We had to use a regular vidalia onion this go round because the selection offered at Wal-Mart was horrible. We like using the red onion for the color.
