Heirloom Tomato and Cucumber Salad with Fresh Dill



1 pound heirloom tomato, cut into random pieces

1 English cucumber, peeled and sliced

½ cup sweet onion, thinly sliced

¼ cup fresh dill, roughly chopped

¼ cup unseasoned rice wine vinegar

Sea salt

Freshly ground pepper


  1. Toss all ingredients together except for vinegar, salt, and pepper.
  2. Just before serving, add the salt, pepper, and vinegar.

We love these simple summer flavors and try to eat as many tomatoes as possible in the summer—at least until our mouth gets sore from the acidity of consuming so many! We also like to experiment with different types of vinegars and salts but have found the rice wine vinegar to be one of our faves.
