Tangy Cucumber Salad

No recipe image available.Salting the cucumbers first draws the water out, which helps retain their crunchiness in the marinade.

1 teaspoon salt - divided use
2 medium tomatoes, chopped
1 medium white onion, chopped
1/4 cup cider vinegar
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 teaspoon celery salt
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
Dash of cayenne pepper (optional)
