Cucumber & Tomato Summer Salad

This recipe is from my Father-in-law John. This is comfort food to us and we LOVE it!!  This recipe is just enough to serve 2-3 people {or 1 person ... me, I could eat the whole thing by myself. I'll actually skip dessert and have more of this!} It would make a perfect summer side dish at your next BBQ!

1 Large ripe tomato
1 Cucumber
1 1/2 - 2 BIG spoonfuls of Miracle Whip
Seasoning Salt
And any other seasoning you would like

1.Cut up cucumber and tomato into small bite size pieces and place in a small bowl.

2. Add 1 1/2 to 2 BIG spoonfuls of Miracle Whip to veggies. Don't over do it on the Miracle Whip, start with 1 spoonful and add more if you need it. It shouldn't be a think coating on the veggies, just a light amount.

3. It should look kind of chunky but mixed well. The tomato juice will make it a very thin dressing soon and all the small chunks will go away.

4. Mix in your seasoning of choice ... I used these ... and it takes A LOT to kind of mask the Miracle Whip taste, but you just add as much or as little as you like or what taste good to you.

5. Chill in the fridge for 20-30 mins before serving and then remove from fridge and stir well. Use a slotted spoon to serve it because the dressing will be REALLY runny. It's so de-lish!!!
