Tomato Cucumber Salad

Tomato Cucumber Salad

Our modern lifestyle often involves cramming activities into every minute of every day. Preparing meals can feel overwhelming when there is so much to do. That's why I love simple, quick recipes that are packed with nutrients and flavor.

 

This easy tomato cucumber recipe can be made in about 5 minutes. It can be served immediately, or stored in the refrigerator for a day or two before serving. The quantities listed are slightly vague on purpose – so you can create according to your preferences and what you have in your pantry. Enjoy!

 

Ingredients:

  • Tomatoes, diced

  • Cucumbers, thinly sliced

  • Onion, thinly sliced

  • Basil, chiffonade

Dressing:

  • Olive oil

  • Vinegar (my favorites– white balsamic, white wine and apple cider vinegar)

  • Dash of Honey

  • Salt & Pepper to taste

 

Instructions:

  1. Mix all vegetables.

  2. Combine dressing ingredients and add to vegetable mixture.

  3. Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Notes:

 

I like to use equal parts tomatoes and cucumbers.

 

For the dressing, add slightly more olive oil than vinegar.

 

Other delicious additions you could try: garlic, peppers, dill, cilantro, feta cheese, olives, whatever sounds good!
