Tomato, Cucumber and Onion Salad

Pin It

I'm always looking for new side dishes, especially when I need to clean out the fridge and see a bunch of ingredients that will be put to waste unless used within the next day or two. I know everyone has starting cranking out their grills, so this would be a perfect addition to your next BBQ.

I really enjoyed this blend of ingredients. Usually the only time I eat cucumbers is with hummus, but they were nice and crunchy against the tomatoes. I'm a sucker for onions as we all know, so it's really no surprise that I made this recipe as soon as I saw it. Plus, we were out of hummus and otherwise those poor little cucumbers would have gone to waste. Enjoy!

Printable Recipe


  • 1 English cucumber, peeled and diced into quarter inch chunks
  • 1 cup of grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 shallot, diced
  • 2 tsp. Italian salad dressing dry mix
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 3 tbsp. olive oil

Whisk dressing mix, lime juice and olive oil together. Toss with chopped veggies. Refrigerate until serving (at least one hour if possible).
