This is a refreshing addition to any meal, great for summertime- perfect for a BBQ or the 4th of July! 

1 large cucumber, peeled, quartered, and sliced
2 Roma Tomatoes (or large handful of Grape?Cherry Tomatoes- use what you like/have)
1/4 red onion, sliced as thinly as you can get it
1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
2 TBSP basalmic vinegar
2 TBSP red wine vinegar
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1 clove garlic, minced OR 1/4 tsp garlic powder
* a shake of dill, or some fresh parsley, or chopped fresh basil if you feel up for it! 

Slice your cucumbers, chop your peppers, slice your onion, and wash your tomatoes. Toss them all in a bowl. Pour olive oil, vinegars, and seasoning on top. Toss it to make sure everything is evenly coated. Refrigerate and let marinate for an hour or two before serving. Taste, add more S & P if needed, toss and enjoy!
