Basil Cucumber Salad

  • cucumbers
  • red onions
  • fresh basil
  • garlic, minced
  • red wine or raw apple cider vinegar (to taste)
  • water (to taste)
  • 1 cup chopped tomato (optional)

Thin-slice the cucumbers and onions and put them in a container. Rip or chop the basil and toss it in. Pour in vinegar and water. I use less vinegar than water, but you want the vinegar a little strong so it will get into the cucumber. Sprinkle in some garlic, maybe 1/2 teaspoon? Let this marinate for at least 2 hours. It keeps well in the refrigerator for days. Add the tomatoes at the last minute.
