Cucumber and Tomato Salad

Love cucumbers and vinegar then I suggest you try this one out, a simple variation of the classic Filipino side dish. It’s a simple mix of cucumber, tomatoes and red onions served with balsamic vinaigrette, it’s easy and simple but delicious. Pair it with heavy meats and rich saucy dishes, it’s a good side dish to clean palate after every spoonful of a heavy mains.

  3. One of my favourite, easy salads. If you dress it with lemon juice and olive oil it’s a simple Greek salad !

    It’s simple to prepare and this is a true refreshing salad!

  7. It’s looks a lot like the Indian salads my family makes. We always sprinkle some salt to let the water run out. The coolness of the salad counters the spiciness of the curry 🙂

  8. This is a great combination of flavors for a salad, it is nice to have a recipe that uses ingredients I often have in my fridge.. just ready to whip up for supper:)
