How to make cucumber tomato salad
- Combine fresh diced cucumber, quartered cherry tomatoes, diced red onions and freshly chopped mint in a large bowl.
- Tip #1: If fresh mint can't be found, freeze-dried mint is a great back up.
- Tip #2: If cherry tomatoes can't be found, diced roma tomatoes can be used in their place. The most important thing is that the tomatoes are ripe. Ripe tomatoes should be slightly tender when touched and bright red in color.
- Add olive oil, red wine vinegar, lemon juice, dried oregano, salt and pepper to the bowl to create the dressing.
- Mix everything together, then serve immediately or store covered in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
What type of cucumbers should you use in a salad?
I prefer English cucumbers, also known as hot house cucumbers, in a salad. They contain minimal seeds and have a thin skin, making them perfect for salads, because you do not have to peel or seed the cucumbers before dicing them up and adding them to a salad.
Persian cucumbers are very similar to English cucumbers and are also a great cucumber variety for salads.
How long does the salad last in the refrigerator?
This salad will stay good, sealed in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. After 3 days, the texture of the tomatoes and cucumbers will be sacrificed.
