Prepare the main ingredients by peeling, quartering, seeding, and cutting a large cucumber into small chunks, and cutting a medium-sized tomato into bite-sized pieces. In a large bowl, combine the cucumber and tomato, creating a vibrant medley of textures and colors. Pour the previously prepared vinaigrette sauce over the vegetables, ensuring a thorough mix before serving.
