Easy Cucumber Heirloom Tomato 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!
- 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
- If the peel of the cucumber is bitter, peel it. Otherwise, you can just slice it up and add it to your salad bowl.
- 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.
- If desired, sprinkle a little feta cheese on top. Enjoy!
