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!


  • Tomatoes, diced

  • Cucumbers, thinly sliced

  • Onion, thinly sliced

  • Basil, chiffonade


  • Olive oil

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

  • Dash of Honey

  • Salt & Pepper to taste


  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.


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!
