Easy Cucumber Heirloom Tomato Salad

Easy Cucumber Heirloom Tomato Salad ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #heirloom #tomato #cucumber #salad

Sometimes the simplest recipes are the best. I’ve made this simple 4 or 5 ingredient salad countless times this summer … even before I had fresh garden tomatoes and cucumbers, but it’s even better with the pretty multi-colored heirloom tomatoes and a crisp fresh from the garden cucumber.

It takes but 5 minutes to make, so I’ve made it for lunches and even for breakfast at work on several occasions. I just gobble it down every time, marveling at how this easy recipe can taste soooo good! I think it’s the fact that it really highlights and lets the cucumbers and tomatoes shine.

You don’t need anything complicated to make a really good cucumber tomato salad. Just some really good cucumbers, tomatoes, a little olive oil, a little granulated garlic, a little salt & pepper. I sometimes add a little feta, but most of the time, I leave that off.

I seriously hope you try this one!

Easy Cucumber Heirloom Tomato Salad

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes

Yield: 1 - 2 servings (or as many as you like)

Easy Cucumber Heirloom Tomato Salad

Ingredients

  • 1 large cucumber, peeled & sliced
  • 1 - 3 heirloom tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 - 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Granulated garlic
  • Salt & freshly ground pepper
  • If desired: a little feta cheese, to sprinkle on top

Instructions

  1. If the peel of the cucumber is bitter, peel it. Otherwise, you can just slice it up and add it to your salad bowl.
  2. Chop the tomatoes and toss them in your salad bowl too. Drizzle with the olive oil and sprinkle with granulated garlic, salt & freshly ground pepper.
  3. If desired, sprinkle a little feta cheese on top. Enjoy!
