Cucumber Tomato Salad

  • 1 ½ English cucumbers sliced  
  • 4 large tomatoes diced
  • ½ medium red onion sliced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh herbs like dill, parsley, or basil
  • Kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste


  1. In a mason jar with a tight-fitting lid, add the olive oil, red wine vinegar, honey, and Dijon mustard. Shake vigorously to combine.
  2. Add the cucumbers, tomatoes, and red onion to a large bowl. Sprinkle with fresh herbs and drizzle with the vinaigrette.
  3. Toss to combine. Season with kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste. 


  • Use English cucumbers for tender skins that don’t need peeling. If using regular cucumbers, peel them to remove the thick skins.
  • Use herbs like fresh dill, basil, cilantro, or thyme.
  • You can mix the vinaigrette up to several hours in advance. Just remember to shake vigorously before drizzling over the salad.
  • Grape tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, Campari tomatoes, and any sun-ripened tomatoes work well in this recipe.
  • Add mozzarella balls, avocado, feta cheese, toasted bread cubes, capers, or bleu cheese.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Toss again before serving.
