Classic Summer Salad

tomato cucumber salad

This salad contains just a few simple ingredients, but big flavor and its so beneficial! Refreshing cucumbers are great in almost everything, like this salad! They are 92.5% water and contain few calories. Like cucumbers, tomatoes are also low calorie and contain only few carbs. The red onion promises protection from harmful free-radicals. 

Ingredients

  • 1 long Cucumber (or few small ones)

  • 5 medium Tomatoes (any kind, or many small tomatoes)

  • 1/2 Red Onion

  • Olive Oil

  • Salt to Taste

  • Black pepper (optional)

  • Handful of fresh dill (optional)

How To:

  • Cut 5 tomatoes into small pieces, place in a bowl.

  • Chop 1/2 red onion and add to the tomatoes.

  • Cut cucumber into small slices and place into the bowl with tomatoes and onion.

  • I like to also add a handful of chopped fresh dill and add to bowl with the rest of cut vegetables. (this step is optional, and you could add cilantro or parsley instead)

  • When you are ready to eat the salad put 3-4 Tablespoons of olive oil.

  • Add salt to taste.

  • You could also add a pinch of ground black pepper but that depends on your taste buds.

  • Classic Summer Salad is ready to enjoy!
