Cucumber Tomato Onion Salad

It’s cucumber season with lots of varieties available just waiting for a delightful way to be served to your family. I’m always looking for easy quick recipes that are nutritious and tasty.  This is a recipe that we use often because it is simple, can be eaten all along during the week and is oh so good! You can use a variety of herbs to change it up for different flavors.

Cucumber Tomato Onion Salad


1 cup diced fresh tomato

1/4 – 1/2 cup diced red onion  (During vidalia onion season I use them for a sweeter flavor)

1 cup diced cucumber

1/2 cup olive oil (EVOO)

1/2 cup red wine vinegar  (Can also use Mrs. Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar for more probiotics)

Salt & Pepper to taste  (I use about a teaspoon of each)

Herbs for flavor:  Choose one of this if you like to add different flavors.  I use about 3 teaspoons of one of these minced.  Adjust for your preference. 

Fresh dill

Fresh cilantro

Fresh basil


Toss all veggies with vinegar and oil.  Season with salt & pepper and herb of your choice if you like.  Best if refrigerated overnight or at least an hour before serving.
