  • Cut the Red onion also in the same lines (make sure you get all the vegetable slices in the same size and shape). Cut the vine riped tomato also into thin slices.
  • Take a Wide Bowl, first add the sliced cucumbers, onions, followed by tomatoes. Sprinkle the Black Pepper and salt. Pour the dressing mixture in the bowl on top.
