Cucumber Tomato Salad

Cucumber Tomato Salad

This salad was so refreshing!  Usually I'm not a very big fan of simple salads like this...they're usually boring and tasteless...but this was awesome!  Letting the vegetables soak in the dressing overnight makes them incredibly flavorful and juicy.  My family ate this with grilled chicken and twice baked potatoes.  Mmmm..such an amazing, healthy meal.  Oh yeah...did I mention this recipe is insanely healthy?  Believe's fat free!  How could something so healthy taste so delicious??

Yield: about 6-8 servings


  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, cut in half
  • 1 large cucumber, peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 cup white onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/3 cup cider vinegar
  • 3/4 cup water


  1. In a bowl, combine the tomatoes, cucumber and onion. In a small bowl, combine the sugar, salt and pepper. Whisk in the vinegar and water. Pour over vegetables and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate overnight before serving.  Serve with a slotted spoon.
