4 tomatoes, Roma type, diced 280 g
1 cucumbers, medium size, diced 260 g
3 tbsp olive oil 45 mL
2 tsp wine vinegar 10 mL
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]
2 1/2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce, to taste 38 mL
1 tbsp fresh cilantro [optional] 2 g


  1. Dice the tomatoes discarding the seeds. Put them in a salad bowl. Prepare the cucumbers: sprinkle them with salt and let drain about 15 min. Dice the cucumbers and add them to the bowl.
  2. In a small bowl, beat the oil and vinegar, using a fork, until well emulsified. Add salt and pepper. Add the Worcestershire sauce to taste. For a more exotic flavour, add a few chopped cilantro leaves, but be careful with the amount since it may be overpowering.
  3. Let stand a few minutes before serving.
