Tomato, Cucumber and (Red) Onion Salad

This is my all-time favorite salad to eat in the summer.  It is so cool and refreshing; perfect for a dinner out on the patio.

I have been itching for this salad all winter, so I went ahead and made it before these veggies were truly in season.  It was still excellent.

I don't really have a recipe for this, so here is my best guess at what I do.

Tomato, Cucumber and Red Onion Salad with Dill Sour Cream Sauce

One large tomato, roughly chopped
One cucumber, peeled and sliced
Half a red onion, thinly sliced
1/3 to 1/2 cup sour cream (add as much or as little as you like depending on the amount of veggies, this also works well with light sour cream)
3 to 4 tablespoons red wine vinegar (taste it after 3 T to see if you need more)
1 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoons fresh dill, minced (you can use dried dill, just use about half as much)
Salt and Pepper to taste

Combine tomato, cucumber and red onion in a large bowl.  Stir in sour cream and red wine vinegar.  Stir in sugar, dill, salt and pepper.  Taste and add more seasonings as necessary.  Allow to chill in the refrigerator at least 15 minutes to allow flavors to combine; the longer the better.
