Summer Tomato and Cucumber Salad

Homegrown tomatoes and cucumbers make for a refreshing Summer salad.

We just picked our first batch of tomatoes for the summer and I have some dill and a bunch of Persian Cucumbers in the fridge. With it being so hot seems like its a perfect time for a refreshing tomato cucumber salad. This is quick and super easy.


4 ripe tomatoes

4 Persian Cucumbers

1/2 medium red onion

Juice of 1 lemon

salt and pepper

2 TBS olive oil or grape seed oil

1 TBS fresh dill

Cut the tomatoes into slices, quarters, 8ths or cubes, it doesn’t really matter and the same goes for the cucumbers. Slice the onion into thin slices and  place  the tomatoes, onions and cucumbers into a large bowl. Add the lemon juice, salt n pepper to taste, dill, oil and lightly toss. Done…yes it really is that easy.

We had this with grilled steak but its so light that it will go well with any protein.
