Cucumber Tomato Salad

This may just be Mark's last supper request. Maybe it's a Russian thing, nostalgia for meals served in those warm, cramped apartments in the Urals, but if I serve this with crusty bread, sometimes broiled warm in the oven, sometimes not, it makes my man happier than anything.
Cucumber Tomato Salad
The Ingredients:
1 large cucumber, peeled and sliced on the diagonal
3-4 vine-ripe Tomatoes or equal to the amount of cucumbers, sliced
1 Shallot, sliced very thin
1/2 cup Mayonnaise
1-2 Tbl. Vinegar
1 tsp. dry Dill or 2 Tbl. fresh Dill
Salt and Pepper, to taste
The How-to:
Combine all ingredients ans serve with bread. It's as simple as that.
