This Crunchy Cucumber Tomato Salad is a staple in our house from spring till the top of summer season and I hope you take pleasure in this easy salad too! 

After I consider straightforward, scrumptious, refreshing, and nutritious salads for the summer season, that is the one which involves thoughts.

Each cucumbers and tomatoes—the celebs of this recipe— are each hydrating greens, accessible in the summertime months, and wealthy in antioxidants. Moreover, cucumbers are one of many best greens to develop (in my view).

Cucumbers comprise vitamin Okay, potassium, pantothenic acid, phosphorus, copper, vitamin C, and magnesium. Tomatoes are wealthy in antioxidants, most notably lycopene. Along with chopped tomatoes and cucumbers, I like including zesty pink onion, tons of contemporary dill and parsley, and sometimes castelvetrano olives.

What I take pleasure in most about this salad is the simplicity and suppleness—it takes about 10 minutes to throw collectively and might be loved as a aspect dish or an entree.

To make this an entree dish, enhance the fats, protein, and starchy carbohydrate(s) by following the Foundational 5 system for a balanced plate. Just a few concepts so that you can enhance the balanced meal elements embody: avocado, edamame, grilled shrimp, fish, smoked salmon, hen, tofu, boiled eggs, hemp seeds, cooked quinoa, and the listing goes on.
