Cucumber & Tomato Slaw

What do you do when your cucumber and tomato supply runneth over in the garden? Find every recipe known to man and give them a try, right? Well, this is WINNER for sure! I found it on one of my favorite sites, Prudence Pennywise. It is not a traditional creamy coleslaw, it is light and tangy. I love cilantro and it definitely worked well here. The creator gives a great tip and that is the dressing ingredients don't need to be mixed separately, just put everything in a bowl and mix it up - yum!

1 (10 ounce) bag slaw mix
2 tomatoes, finely chopped
1 medium cucumber, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup chopped cilantro, mint, or basil
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper
3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons olive oil

Combine all ingredients in a big bowl and mix. Season to taste for salt and pepper. Refrigerate until serving time. This salad keeps well for at least 4 hours. It is even good the next day, although it won't be quite as crisp.
