Simple and flavorful tomato and cucumber salad recipe.
I’m back with another delicious and easy salad — this one is perfect for the summer months, especially if you grow your own herbs and veggies!
This salad is super easy to throw together. It’s also a great one to make in large amounts for get-togethers, because it can be made well ahead of time. (And is usually even better after a day or so!)
Watching my garden grow is one of my very favorite parts of summer.
When I first I started vegetable gardening I went with the basics — a few herbs, cherry and regular tomatoes and a ton of cukes!:

This quick salad is SO fresh and yummy, and if you have a garden you may have most of what you’ll need growing in your backyard. I only have to buy a couple ingredients for this when I make it in the summer.
I’ll list the ingredients and how much I used, but the measurements for this crunchy salad depend completely on your preferences!
It’s incredibly easy and quick to throw together:
Here’s what you’ll need to make this fresh salad:
Cucumber Tomato and Onion Salad
Two cucumbers, chopped
Four tomatoes, chopped
Half red onion, chopped
1/4 cup feta cheese
One+ tbsp parsley
One+ tbsp dill
Two to three tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
Salt to taste
The three main veggie ingredients give this salad great crunch and the marinade gives it wonderful flavor and a bit of bite that is delicious!
Like I mentioned before, the ingredients should be adjusted to your tastes. Add more feta if you want (so good) and I like more red wine vinegar than most recipes I’ve found. I also LOVE dill so I add more of that as well.
Taste it as you go to see if you you want more of an ingredient!
This is delicious right after preparation, but even better a day or two later after it’s had time to marinate in the vinegar and herbs.
I’ve seen recipes that include avocado as well! If you’re not a feta fan, mozzarella would be another great cheese option.
Have you tried this healthy and easy salad? It’s addictive! I can eat all of it in one sitting. 🙂
