Delicious {and Healthy!} Cucumber and Tomato Summer Salad

May 30, 2023

Simple and flavorful tomato and cucumber salad recipe.

I'm back with another delicious and easy salad -- this one is perfect for the summer months, especially if you grow your own herbs and veggies! 

This salad is super easy to throw together. It's also a great one to make in large amounts for get-togethers, because it can be made well ahead of time. (And is usually even better after a day or so!)

Watching my garden grow is one of my very favorite parts of summer. 

I use a loose square foot gardening method -- you'd be surprised at how much you can fit into a four by four foot space! Especially if you plant veggies that grow up or vine like tomatoes and cucumbers. 

When I first I started vegetable gardening I went with the basics -- a few herbs, cherry and regular tomatoes and a ton of cukes!:

These are great for beginners because they grow like crazy with little attention!

This quick salad is SO fresh and yummy, and if you have a garden you may have most of what you'll need growing in your backyard. I only have to buy a couple ingredients for this when I make it in the summer. 

I'll list the ingredients and how much I used, but the measurements for this crunchy salad depend completely on your preferences! 

It's incredibly easy and quick to throw together:

I recently purchased this amazing chopper that made super quick work of chopping up the ingredients! It is AWESOME!

Here's what you'll need to make this fresh salad: 

Cucumber Tomato and Onion Salad

Two cucumbers, chopped
Four tomatoes, chopped
Half red onion, chopped
1/4 cup feta cheese
One+ tbsp parsley
One+ tbsp dill 
Two to three tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
Salt to taste

The three main veggie ingredients give this salad great crunch and the marinade gives it wonderful flavor and a bit of bite that is delicious! 

Like I mentioned before, the ingredients should be adjusted to your tastes. Add more feta if you want (so good) and I like more red wine vinegar than most recipes I've found. I also LOVE dill so I add more of that as well. 

Taste it as you go to see if you you want more of an ingredient! 

This is delicious right after preparation, but even better a day or two later after it's had time to marinate in the vinegar and herbs. 

I've seen recipes that include avocado as well! If you're not a feta fan, mozzarella would be another great cheese option. 

Have you tried this healthy and easy salad? It's addictive! I can eat all of it in one sitting. :)

  3. I make a version of this salad as well, one thing I could always get my kids to eat. I leave out the onions, add avocado when I have it, and sometimes bell peppers, and usually use a balsamic vinaigrette, but any salad dressing can be substituted
