A delicious summer salad recipe with homemade dressing – make this for your next picnic!
Guys. This tomato cucumber and onion salad is stinkin’ delicious. So much so, that I actually CRAVE it the same way I do chips and ice cream.
Yep, it’s that good.
The secret is the delectable homemade dressing. I just can’t convince myself to buy dressing at the store anymore, since this is SO simple and yummy!
Have you tried the tomato cucumber and onion salad at Cracker Barrel? If you’re a fan, you’ve gotta try this recipe, which blows it out of the water (just sayin’).
This salad is perfect for summer and the abundance of fresh cucumbers and tomatoes everywhere. We’ve got some in our garden, and I can’t WAIT for them to be ready so I can make this with home-grown veggies.
This salad is bursting with B vitamins, potassium, lycopene, and vitamin A – all to energize you for summer fun! Also – the homemade dressing is recipe is perfect on everything. I love it on any salad, stir fry, or as a dipping sauce.
Let’s get to the recipe – it couldn’t be simpler.
First, wash 2 large cucumbers, 2 large tomatoes, and half an onion. Dice and place in a large bowl.
Next, add a few kalamata greek olives (optional). I’m in love with the Pearls brand. Mix up the Delish Lemon-Garlic Dressing (recipe below) and drizzle over the entire salad and mix well. A glass salad dressing bottle is nice to have for mixing this up often.
Let this salad sit in the fridge for a day for the flavors to mesh – it’ll be even more delicious. Only I can’t wait that long – I just eat it. All of it.
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do. Your body will thank you.
