Easy Cucumber Tomato Salad

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.

All of the vibrant, colorful vegetables and herbs combine to create a dish that is full of fresh flavor. The dressing is a simple combination of olive oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper. Since no mayo is used, it’s the perfect salad to bring to a summer gathering and not have to worry about it going bad.

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!

One of my very favorite salads! I've never added feta, but would love that too! I'm Italian, so the cilantro has to be avoided at all costs, but easily done! haha!

I love this salad. It is perfect for summer time and taking to a BBQ. I love that you added feta. That salty savory cheese is delicious with tomatoes.

Oooo! I love that you added feta to this. Cheese makes any salad complete.
