Summer Cucumber and Tomato Salad for Two

I love when tomatoes come in season, so sweet I can’t stop eating them! This refreshing salad is packed with flavor, simple ingredients, and minimal prep. Perfect for summer evenings to compliment any dish.

Note: This salad is a great basic recipe, it’s also amazing with the addition of fresh herbs like mint, basil, or dill.

Yield: 2 servings


1/2 cucumber

2 roma tomatoes, heirloom, any kind you like

1/4 red onion

1 celery stalks

olive oil

white vinegar

salt and pepper


Wash and pat dry all produce.

Dice the tomato, onion, and slice the celery into thin slices. Peel the cucumber and dice. In a medium bowl add in the tomato, onion, and celery. Drizzle 1-2 tbsp. of olive oil and vinegar. Season with a little salt and pepper, to taste and lightly toss.

You can serve right away or chill in the fridge for about an hour so the salad can marinate and deeper flavors will develop.
