Easy Cucumber Tomato Salad Recipe from A Kitchen Addiction

My husband asked for cucumber tomato salad the other day. I replied, with a “Hmm, I don’t think I’ve ever had that before.” His response was one of disbelief that I hadn’t had this salad. While I’ve heard of it before, I can’t remember ever having it. After a quick Google search, I discovered that there are dozens of ways to a make a cucumber tomato salad. Apparently, I’ve been missing out all these years!

Use mayo, use dill, use different vinegars. Cheese, no cheese. The possibilities seemed endless. I decided to do a combination of a handful of them to come up with a salad that would be full of flavors that we loved and that I could make without making a special trip to the grocery store for any of the ingredients! Cucumbers and tomatoes remain the main focus of the dish in my easy cucumber tomato salad, however, I decided to add bell peppers, onion, feta and cilantro to the mix.

Plus, it’s incredibly easy to make, so you can quick whip it together whenever you need a side dish. I have to say that cucumber tomato salad has now found its way into my menu rotation!
