Simple Cucumber and Tomato Salad

One of my standby prepared salads for Summer as well as slimming down. It goes together fast, and keeps in the fridge as an easy standby. Sometimes if I am a bit peckish before I start dinner, I will have a small bowl to tide me over, especially if I am going shopping for groceries. It is never a good idea to go into a market hungry. Your cart will become a junk food magnet, when willpower to eat healthy falls by the wayside to new and embarrassing lows. I know it does for me.

I use Splenda in this and that may not be everyone’s favorite, since not everyone cares for the way it is formulated, but feel free to put in whichever kind you like- sugar, honey, agave syrup, stevia…just be sure to reconfigure the amount because Splenda does not substitute 1:1 for every sweetener. Taste as you go along if you are not sure, starting small, and adding a little more as needed until it is as you like it.
