Creamy Cucumber Tomato Salad is fresh cucumbers, tomatoes and onions in a sour cream mayonnaise dill base. A perfect healthy light lunch or dinner side.
We just really enjoy fresh tomatoes and cucumbers. I love to have a multitude of healthy dishes that I can bring together fast to go with chicken, fish or beef. This Creamy Cucumber Tomato Salad is so quick to come together with nine ingredients ( two of them being salt & pepper). You can have this prepped, stirred and on the table in less than 15 minutes. The kids love it and it is absolutely perfect with any grilled or barbecued cuisine.
The key to making the best Creamy Cucumber Tomato Salad is picking up good crisp fresh cucumbers, sun ripened tomatoes and sweet onions. I have made this with slicing cucumbers and English cucumbers and both are equally delicious. Both cucumbers and tomatoes contain a lot of water so I find it works best to mix the sour cream, mayo base in right before serving. Leftovers are still delicious albeit not as creamy. Are you a sweet vinegar cucumber onion fan? Than you should try my Marinated Cucumbers and Red Onions. My family loves both mouthwatering side dishes.
Every once in awhile just for a little variation on the taste of Creamy Cucumber Tomato Salad I will add one teaspoon of rice vinegar and fresh chives along with the dill from my garden. It gives it just a little bit of a different twist and perhaps a little more dimension. Funny that hubby likes it just as written and I like it with just a touch of rice vinegar and chives. My late sweet Mother used to say that the world would be a boring place if we all liked the same thing. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do!
