Cucumber, tomato and red onion salad

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.

How to make easy salad

Because this recipe is so easy, use the very best ingredients you can afford. Fresh, in season vegetables are a must. Peel and slice the cucumber into coins then add to a large bowl. Slice the tomato into wedges and thinly slice the red onion then add to the bowl. Dress with a vinaigrette of your choice and serve.
