Tasty Tomato, Cucumber & Chive Salad
Ingredients:
2 ripe tomatoes, cut into bite sized pieces
1 ripe cucumber, peeled and cut into bite sized pieces
2-4 Tbl. chives, cut or you can use the tops of green onions, minced
1/4 – 1/2 cup seasoned rice wine vinegar (this is vinegar with sugar already in it)  
Directions:
Combine all in a bowl and give a gentle stir.
Eat immediately or store in refrigerator for up to 1 day. Longer and the tomato begins to release most of its juices, making it a soupy consistency.
