Taste buds change, people!
Keep giving those veggies you think you hate a try, because one day, you might just love it.
This cucumber tomato salad is my latest way to scarf as many cucumbers in a day as possible. 😉 The salad itself if fresh and crisp and juicy all in one go and the dressing is totally simple with just olive oil, vinegar, and some fresh herbs.
This cucumber and tomato salad makes my heart sing.
Plus, it’s crisp, cool and refreshing when you serve it up for dinner on a hot night!
How to make cucumber and tomato salad:
You’ll start by chopping your cucumbers. I recommend using English cucumbers because they’re easier to digest (meaning: they won’t make you burp so much, haha) due to their thinner peel. You can peel your cucumbers as well, though I never do for this recipe.
Add in some halved grape tomatoes, thinly sliced red onion, and a generous handful (or two!) of crumbled feta.
Let’s be honest – the chunks of feta are the pieces everyone wants most! 😉
Next, drizzle the cucumber and tomato salad with a little olive oil and red wine vinegar. Toss the salad, taste, and add salt as needed.
This recipe is seriously so easy and it’s perfect for a hot summer night!
What does feta cheese taste like?
Feta is a bold and tangy cheese with a salty flavor. It’s made from sheep or goat’s milk and it’s soft and crumbly.
If you don’t have or like feta, you can substitute queso fresco. It’s a more mild cheese with a similar texture.
I love the pop of salty flavor and soft texture it brings to any salad.
