arse_hat's summer salad (? no name given)

Finely chopped garlic, finely chopped shallots, loosely chopped cucumber, cubed tomatoes, crushed pepper, sea salt, olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

Marinate the cucumbers in the balsamic and then salt the tomatoes. Mix pepper with the shallots and toss lightly with some olive oil. Let all sit for an hour.

Drain balsamic from the cucumbers and the excess juice and salt from the tomatoes and mix both with the shallots. Yummy.

For variety use rice, red wine, white wine, or cider vinegar in place of the balsamic. Finely sliced strips of sweet peppers are also a nice addition.
