This Cucumber Tomato Onion Salad literally takes 10 minutes to make. Cucumber Tomato Salad is a wonderful, healthy, fresh salad to serve at your next summer BBQ!
I wait with great anticipation for July. My tomatoes from the garden are red, ripe, juicy and so very flavorful! By the time the weather gets hot enough here to be in the 70’s at night, (which is what ripens the tomatoes) I already have harvested lots of cucumbers.
This easy summer salad is one of my favorites to serve at all those summer BBQ’s. There is nothing much easier or healthier, either.
What Vinegar to Use in Cucmber Tomato Salad?
You can use a variety of vinegars for this salad. Balsamic is fantastic. Red wine vinegar, apple cider vinegar, champagne vinegar are all great too! I usually mix it up and make this Cucumber Tomato Salad with a different one each time I make it. Each vinegar adds a different depth of flavor to the salad. It is light and refreshing!

love this salad, so fresh and summery. Especially if all your vegs are coming from your vegetable patch. Vinegar is perfect dressing, I just saw a Chimichurri dressing on Elaine blog that might be perfect for it:
Yes, Laura, I agree! Chimichurri would be lovely! Thank you, my friend!

I live in Wisconsin, so my tomatoes are only just starting to peep their little heads out. I’m making a list of all the recipes I want to use them in when they’re finally ripe, and this salad is at the top! I make a similar one with dill and red wine vinaigrette. Your variations sound delish!
I love easy and delicious salads. I think cucumbers are underused and I love that you included them in this salad. It looks so fresh and yummy! I will be trying your salad real soon!
What a quick and easy summer dish, I’ll be making that this week for my work lunches.
Thank you so much, Wade! I’m glad you enjoyed the recipe! Let me know how your lunches are this week!
This looks soooooo good!

Oh, me too! I wait with great anticipation for the first home grown tomatoes! Thanks, Liz!
I love cucumber tomato salad and make it all the time. I occasionally add yogurt in it and eat. It tastes yum.
I do too, Priya! I don’t make it with yogurt because I am allergic to yogurt! Thanks for your comment!
I grew up eating cucumber tomato salad. It’s a classic salad I never get tired of.
I did too! it’s so light and refreshing compared to the mayonnaise laden salads! Thanks, Iryna!
