Another great thing about this tomato cucumber salad is that it’s SO versatile! Add in sliced olives, chickpeas or pine nuts to give it more of a Greek spin, or even some pasta or chicken to serve as a main course! You can also substitute the herbs depending on what you have in your fridge or garden, such as adding in basil instead of parsley. This is a family staple and is sure to become a hit in your household!

Cucumber Salad Recipe

This cucumber salad recipe is super easy and comes together so quickly! For the homemade vinaigrette, all you need is olive oil, red wine vinegar, oregano and salt & pepper, which you probably already have in your pantry.

It also saves really well…just refrigerate and let the flavors marinate together even more. Great for leftovers the next day. So easy and yummy!
