Cucumber Tomato Salad

Cucumber Tomato Salad is a classic salad, light, cooling, and oh-so refreshing. This easy salad is made with sliced cucumbers & juicy tomatoes and enhanced with slivers of red onion and a tangy vinaigrette dressing.

I love using a combination of fresh or dried oregano and basil in this salad to bring out its essence. Chopped fresh dill or parsley are excellent!

Tossed together just before serving, or made a few hours in advance, this refreshing salad is perfect for a casual dinner night or for feeding a crowd at a potluck. This salad has become a staple on our menu plan over the past year and it’s also become one of the most popular summer recipes here on the blog. I made a quick little video last week, just for fun, so that I could share it with you today as we go into tomato season!

    Ummm, not sure but. I think you meant add zest . LOL

    • Believe adding some fresh lemon juice to the salad will add a bright fresh taste along with the olive oil, salt and pepper - which is a simple vinaigrette. One can certainly add lemon zest to amp up the lemon flavor.

  • Fabulous salad! Sometimes I do a "clean out the fridge" salad and prepare a simple lemon garlic vinaigrette which is whay you have her minus the garlic. Always refreshing. Just picked herbs of choice add another layer of flavor.
