California Salad (Tomato, Cucumber and Onions)

Simple, refreshing and delicious! Juicy tomatoes, crisp cucumbers and crunchy onion combine with Miracle Whip to make an unbelievably delicious salad! You will be surprised and delighted...the juice from the tomatoes combines so well with the Miracle Whip, you'll never know that Miracle Whip is in it once the flavors have combined. You may be tempted to add something to it, it seems too simple to be good, but try it like this first, I guarantee you'll like it! I make it often for potlucks and BBQ's and people are always amazed at the simplicity of this recipe. Family legend is that relatives from California always made this salad and so it was dubbed 'California Salad'. Can easily be made low/non-fat, but I prefer the regular version. It is also great as a 'relish' on grilled meats, especially brats. This is also a very 'forgiving' recipe...I never measure anything, just throw it together. Just remember the veggie ratio is 1:1:1 and you'll do fine! **Unless you live in a warm climate and can grow or get locally grown tomatoes all year long, don't bother making this in the winter! Fresh, ripe juicy tomatoes are the key to making this salad** Easily doubled or tripled, but yield will vary depending on size of the vegetables. "Cooking time" is refrigerator time!
