Made for a special family lunch today, it went down so well. Thankyou.The herbs make it taste so fresh and the dressing was delicious..-23 May 2013
I've made this a few times now & it's lovely with fish or chicken and very versatile. I chopped the garlic into 3 or 4 pieces each & removed it after the salad had been sitting for a couple of hours (so not to get garlic breath). Have also added olive oil & used dried herbs when out of fresh & this works well too. The dressing you get from this salad is so tasty, believe me even if the tomatoes are a little hard nothing will be left.-14 Mar 2010
I omitted the green pepper because I didnt have one. Substituted white wine vinegar for balsamic and added fresh oregano. Macerated overnight and added some grated Parmesan. Delicous.-22 May 2017
Cucumber Tomato Salad
Freshness galore with this Cucumber Tomato Salad! Fresh Campari tomatoes, cucumber, red onion and garlic in a lemony dressing is the perfect side salad to chicken or lamb.
If you stopped by yesterday, you saw my post for the most delicious lamb kofta open-faced pitas. Toasty pita, hummus, kofta and topped with a cucumber tomato salad [and a garlicky yogurt sauce]. Originally, I wasn’t planing to do a whole separate post for this salad. Until I tasted it. And then ate it every day with 1/2 a slice of pita bread.
There’s no secret ingredient, just fresh ingredients. Which, let’s face it, is the best ingredients. With that said, Campari tomatoes are my favorite tomato for salads like this. When you want wedges of tomatoes, but not too big of tomato wedges they are your tomatoes. And their flavor is sublime.
To Make this Cucumber Tomato Salad you will need:
- 1 large English cucumber
- a pound Campari tomatoes
- 1/2 a medium red onion
- a clove of fresh garlic
- 3/4 teaspoon dried parsley
- a 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
- juice of 1/2 a lemon
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- kosher salt
- freshly ground black pepper
- fresh mint, for garnish
First, rinse off the cucumber and trim the ends. Cut it in half and then the halves lengthwise.
Next, grab a spoon and scrape out all of the seeds. Then slice into 1/4-inch thick slices and throw them into a large mixing bowl. Because the seeds hold water, removing them will keep this salad from getting soggy.
Then quarter the tomatoes, slice the red onion and finely mince up the clove of garlic and add it to the bowl. Next measure the dried herbs into your palm. Pinch the herbs in-between your fingers and rub together, over and into the bowl.
Lastly, drizzle in 2 teaspoons olive oil and season with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.
Cucumber Tomato Salad is fresh and flavorful and ready in minutes.
This salad is delicious served as is or with my Lamb Kofta Open-faced Pitas!
