  • 1/4 cup olive oil $0.64
  • 2 Tbsp red wine vinegar $0.08
  • 1 tsp dried oregano $0.10
  • 1/2 tsp salt $0.02
  • Freshly cracked pepper $0.03


  • 4 Roma tomatoes (or two medium tomatoes) $1.48
  • 1 medium cucumber $0.34
  • 1/2 small red onion $0.36


  • Whisk together the olive oil, red wine vinegar, oregano, salt, and some freshly cracked pepper in a bowl, or combine them in a jar and shake until mixed. Set the dressing aside to allow the flavors to blend.
  • Thinly slice* the tomato, cucumber, and red onion. Place them in a large bowl.
  • Pour the dressing over the sliced vegetables and toss to coat. Serve immediately, or refrigerate until ready to eat. The onions will become more mild as they marinate in the dressing.


*The vegetables can be cut into small chunks if preferred.
