Teeco Salad

This is a wonderful salad at the peak of the garden, when fresh tomatoes and cucumber are plentiful.

Five tomatoes, deseeded
One sweet red onion (see notes)
Two cucumbers, deseeded
Extra virgin olive oil
Red wine vinegar
Freshly ground black pepper
Sea or Kosher salt

Deseed tomatoes and dice to about one half inch cubes.
Deseed cucumbers and dice to about one half inch cubes.
Dice onion to one half to one quarter inch.
Combine tomatoes, cucumber and onion in bowl.
Dress with olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper.
Stir, taste and adjust dressing as necessary.

I would recommend red onion only if it is sweet. If it is peppery, substitute sweet onion.
Stir before serving.

    Hi, your site it fantastic, thanks. I’ve been on the SCD for Crohn’s for about a year and doing well. I want to start experimenting with red wine vinegar but am not sure if what I see at the store is legal. It contains sodium metabisulfite and I can’t find any info if this is SCD legal or not, nor can I find an totally clean red wine vinegar that has only 100% natural ingredients. Thanks for any help on this issue, would hate to cause a flare up by accidentally eating illegals.

      Thanks Paul,

      I could not find an authoritative answer regarding sodium metabisulfite other than some don’t like it regardless of the SCD. I looked at my Regina red wine vinegar and it uses potassium metabisulfite. I couldn’t find an authoritative answer on that either, but Welch’s 100% juice which is SCD legal contains potassium metabisulfite. Presuming it contained that ingredient when Elaine approved it, we can presume that it’s okay to consume in red wine vinegar as well.

      As always, when you add a new thing to your diet, keep careful track in your journal so you can determine if it is giving you a problem.
