“You will love this! It's the perfect recipe for a luncheon. Also a good make-ahead recipe for the week. Since I like keeping the seeds in the tomatoes and cukes, I just make the salad without them, then dice them fresh and mix them in each time I serve it. You may want to seed them if you throw it all together at once. I got this from a friend, but I think it came from cooking light or southern living. Serve with bread/butter.”
