Healthy Cucumber-Tomato Salad

Since I don’t like salad dressing, I created this simple salad. Not only is it yummy but it is better for you since the only dressing it does have is the one it creates. After we finish eating the veggies, I like to strain the seeds out of the juice and use it as a salad dressing substitute on a green salad. Since you make it in a bowl with a sealable lid, it is great for picnics or potlucks. The prep time also includes refrigeration time.
