This recipe is only a guideline.
Please only make this recipe if you have access to very fresh high quality tomatoes and cucumbers from a farmers market or better yet, your own garden. If you try and make this recipe from vegetables you buy at a grocery store chain type place, you will be disappointed.
Very simply mix all ingredients in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Taste it and adjust the seasoning to your liking. More salt, more vinegar, whatever you like.
Serve as an appetizer or an accompaniment to some fresh roasted fish or chicken.
