This easy cucumber, tomato and red onion salad is a delicious, refreshing side dish perfect for easy meals and great for summer.
This salad has been on our dinner table since I was a little girl. My mom loved a quick, simple salad to serve with dinner and I have continued that tradition with my family. My kids love salad, in all shapes and forms. A meal just isn’t complete without some form of vegetable dressed with a simple vinaigrette.
