Fire and Ice Tomatoes

March 5, 2010

I had a lot of onions, tomatoes, and green leaves sitting in my fridge earlier today, so I made Fire and Ice Tomatoes again. This is a recipe I got from Allrecipes.

The first time I made this recipe, I didn’t really like it that much because all the liquid sank to the bottom, which was the best tasting part of the recipe, and so I pretty much ate tomatoes, cucumbers, and onions, and then had a treat of the dressing at the very end. I refused to make the same mistake again, so this time I pre-salted the cucumber, which involves tossing it with a little salt and letting it sit for about 20 minutes. This way, the recipe had a lot less water in it, which allowed my dressing to adhere to the salad components. Anyway, you can find below my altered version of the recipe.

Fire and Ice Tomatoes


4 medium roma tomatoes, cubed
1/2 large cucumber, cubed
1/2 medium onion, sliced
1/3 cup white vinegar
1/4 tsp stevia
2 Tablespoons mustard
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt

(1) In a large bowl, combine onions and tomatoes.
(2) In a saucepan, boil the vinegar, stevia, mustard and cayenne for 1 minute.
(3) Pour mixture over tomatoes and onion; toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate until cool, about an hour.
(4) Meanwhile, in another bowl, add salt and cucumbers; toss to combine. Wait 20 minutes, then drain.
(5) Add cucumber to tomato and onion and mixture; toss to coat.
