Tomato Cucumber Salad

2 Comments

P1030900This is one of my favorite summer salads, and this time of year, I could seriously eat it EVERY day! Another reason it’s a favorite is because only takes about 15 minutes to prepare. I use different types of tomatoes, depending on what’s available at the farmers market. This salad is especially tasty with heirloom tomatoes.

Serves 4-6.  Prep time:  20-30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 cups of chopped cucumbers. I prefer English or Japanese varieties.
  • 3 cups of chopped tomatoes.  Any type of tomato works, cherry, plum, grape, heirloom, etc.
  • 1/2 cup of olive or avocado oil. I like this brand of avocado oil.
  • 3-4 Tbsp of lemon juice. The amount depends on how much of a “lemony” taste you want!
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp of sumac.

Optional Ingredients

  • 1 – 2 avocados
  • 2-3 Tbsp of fresh, minced parsley

Instructions

Add chopped cucumbers, tomatoes, and avocados to a large bowl. Add oil, lemon juice, sumac, and parsley. Mix gently until ingredients are well incorporated. It can be served immediately, or 15-30 minutes after prepared.
