Cucumber Tomato Salad - Summer Salad ideas
Posted on May 09 2016
Lunch is such a mystery to me. I always say this to my friends, but seriously? What do people eat for lunch. Leftovers? A turkey sandwich? I find when I ask people they don't usually know what they even eat for lunch. So I thought I would share one of my favorite things for lunch.
When the weather starts to warm up I always crave salads because I like something refreshing and cool!
I have made this salad probably 1000 times, and I feel like I have finally perfected it. So I would love to share it with you!
This recipe is so simple I almost feel like it doesn't need instructions! It's perfect for those days where you are looking for something healthy but don't want to spend a lot of prep time.
Here is what you will need:
1. Apple Cider Vinegar
2. Olive oil
3. English Cucumbers
4. Cherry Tomatoes
5. Red onion
6. Sea Salt
Start by slicing the cucumbers thinly, and then halving the red cherry tomatoes.
Set those in a bowl, and move on to the onion next
I then start to slice the onion very finely. I slice up only about a couple table spoons worth and throw them into the salad!
Now we are going to add the "dressing". You will do a small dash of the olive oil, and about 2 cap fulls of the Apple cider vinegar. I typically do the vinegar to taste, so if you want it slightly more tart, add as you go so that it doesn't get overly sour.
Then I mix with a fork until I feel like all of the veggies are evenly coated. Lastly, I add sea salt to taste.
Plate in your favorite pretty bowl and enjoy! I love all of the bright colors. It makes it so fun to eat! This is a healthy and delicious way to keep your waistline trim for the summer!
