Simple and easy, cucumber and tomato salad. 3 ingredients really? You cant go wrong. I make this a lot for family dinner because it is 1, easy to make for 20 people… and 2, its very inexpensive. This is great for the summer, Italian night, BBQ’s and just a simple side for any dinner. I make this a lot in the summer because its perfect tomato season and everyone has tomato plants it seems like! I hope you enjoy this simple but yummmmmmmmmmmmy salad.
Here’s what you’ll need….
Your favorite Italian Dressing- My favorite is King Soopers brand- Light and Zesty!
Salt and Pepper to taste
*****I use 3 Roma Tomatoes for every 1 Large cucumber. That serves about 2-4 people. SO Double or triple it depending on how many people you are serving!*****
First, your going to want to slice of the ends of your cucumbers and tomatoes. Also Skin/peel your cucumbers.
Slice down the middle or in half and cut into 1/4 inch strips.
Slice your tomatoes the same way.
Add to a large bowl and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Tomatoes always taste better when you salt them! Brings out the flavor.
Last but not least. Add your Italian dressing. You want enough to cover all the pieces and leave a little bit of dressing on the bottom so you have extra for people who like it and so it really sets into all the pieces for the most flavor!
Chill in the fridge 30 minutes to hours before so the tomatoes and cucumbers can suck up all the flavor.
