Fresh Tomato Cucumber Salad Recipe

There is nothing worse than letting fresh veggies go to waste. That is why I decided to make a fresh tomato cucumber salad from the tomatoes that my hubby accidentally bought instead of my tiny little that I needed for a recipe.

He’s the best for going to the grocery store for me while I lay under a pile of work and dishes. LOL I am excited to share this yummy fresh tomato cucumber salad with you today. You will love it as much as I do. P.S. I ate this whole bowl over the course of two days. It is pretty healthy so I felt no guilt!

This tomato salad recipe is ideal for a cookout to be served as a side to recipes like these yummy Great American Umami Cheeseburgers or these grilled honey mustard skewers. Below you will find a cookout linkup with all kinds of recipe that will go with this easy to make tomato salad. This week is Cook Out Week and I am working with 50 bloggers on recipes that go great at a cookout this summer.

  1. I think this would be a great salad, but I noticed that the recipe video and the recipe picture are not the same. The picture shows yellow pepper but it’s not in the recipe. Are there any other differences in the ingredients?
