1 cucumber, peeled and cut into thin slices
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tomatoes, diced
2 to 3 garlic cloves, crushed
fresh chives, chopped, to taste
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon vinegar
1. Place cucumber in a bowl and evenly sprinkle with salt; set aside for 10 minutes (this draws the juice out of the cucumber).
2. Add tomatoes, garlic, chives, sugar, and vinegar; toss to coat.
