Who says lettuce has to steal the show in a salad? This salad boasts the fresh taste of cucumber in the company of a slew of delicious, colorful fruits and vegetables. Simple and simply gorgeous! A must try in my book!
3 large Tomatoes, diced
3 medium Cucumbers, quartered lengthwise and chopped
1 Sweet Red Pepper, finely chopped
½ Small Onion, finely chopped (I like Sweet Yellow/Vidalia)
7 Large Lettuce Leaves (I use Romaine), chopped
3-5 Radishes, finely chopped (optional)
½ Lemon, juice only (1/4 cup or more Red Wine Vinegar also makes a delicious substitute here)
4 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients in a medium-large mixing bowl. Enjoy immediately.
