My kitchen helper, summer 2011. Time flies–but he still likes cucumbers!

I have my sous-chef use a melon baller to seed the cucumbers. This technique works really well.

Dice tomatoes and slice onion into very thin strips.

Combine cucumber, tomatoes and onions in serving bowl.

Mix cider vinegar and oil with salt and pepper. Toss with vegetables.
