Cucumber, Tomato, and Onion Salad- A wonderful make-ahead salad recipe to use up those fresh garden vegetables! It makes a great side dish to so many meals!
Folks, this recipe is a true favorite around here!! We get excited when we know it’s in the fridge. Now when I say “we,” I would mean my husband and I. The kids aren’t jumping up and down over vegetables YET. Although, our youngest two have the most potential when it comes to fresh veggies.
This is seriously the best side dish for so many recipes! It marinates for a few hours in a sweet and tangy dressing that only takes a few ingredients to make. I love short ingredient lists! It makes a recipe so much more appealing.
Tips for Cucumber, Tomato, and Onion Salad
- You can change up varieties of vegetables. Use whatever kind of tomatoes you have on hand. You can also use a white onion. I just prefer red onions in salads.
