Tomato and Cucumber Salad

We love this tomato and cucumber salad because it’s light and refreshing, perfect for barbeques and picnics! Pick up a few tomato plants from Back Home on the Farm and use your tomatoes for this delicious side dish. 

You’ll need:

For the salad:

  • 5 large tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 English cucumber, peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 large red onion, sliced
  • tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 pinch kosher salt and 1 pinch black pepper

For the dressing:

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • teaspoon kosher salt + 1 pinch freshly ground black pepper
  • garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon honey or brown sugar (optional for low-carb, Keto, or sugar-free diets)
  • teaspoon dried oregano

To make: 

Combine all the vegetables, herbs, salt, and pepper in a salad bowl.

In another bowl, combine all the dressing ingredients. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss to combine. Refrigerate and serve when ready.
