Tomato Cucumber Salad

Cucumber's seem to grow like zucchini when they start coming on....they just keep coming and coming.I didn't plant a lot of cucumbers this year because more often than not...mine just don't grow. So I don't have hoards and hoards of them...just NOT enough to make pickles with, but too many to just eat. I thought I better come up with some yummy recipe that would use up my multiplying cucumbers and please's everyone's palate...and this Tomato Cucumber Salad did just that. It's light, refreshing and can accent just about any meal!...OH and did I say EASY? Hope you love it as much as we did!

Tomato Cucumber Salad

7-8 large tomatoes, diced
5 cucumbers, peeled and diced
5 string cheese, sliced (so you have small, round, flat circles
1/2 c. white vinegar
1-2 packages DRY Italian salad dressing mix (1 if you like a mild taste, 2 if you want more flavor)

Combine all ingredient in a large bowl, stir until well mixed. Refrigerate for 30 minutes before serving.
*This recipe is very versatile...you can add more or less of whatever you want. I wanted to put sliced olives in my salad because I thought they would not only make the salad more colorful, but I thought it would taste great too....but my family VETO'ed the idea because they DISLIKE olives in salad...BUT if I were you, I would add them *wink*.
