Tomato and Cucumber Salad



*comes up for air*

Hello?

Anyone out there?

What month is it?

What year is it?

Oh, January? 2010?

I don't know about anyone else, but 2009 was a doozy.Not sure how many life lessons one can fit in a year, but I heard from quite a few of them. Things have been changing and life has been rearranging. I think things have finally calmed down by now. Maybe.

The new year always presents an opportunity to start fresh and new. We have a chance to look back at what happened in the year and pay attention to what lessons we learned and bring them along with a clear mind in the new year.

So to bring in the first entry of 2010, a simple and fresh tomato and cucumber salad.It goes well on top of a bed of greens or works by itself as an appetizer.

1. Slice the white onion into julienned strips, or thin strips and place into a bowl. Sprinkle with salt and pour lemon juice over the onion.Set aside for 30 minutes.
2. While the onion is marinating, slice tomatoes and cucumber into desired cut. I prefer the half moon shape.
