Cucumber, Tomato, and Onion Salad tastes like summertime in a bowl. Cool, crisp cucumber, fresh, sweet tomatoes, the spicy bite of onion, and a tangy vinaigrette all combined to make a quick, easy, and healthy summer salad.
If you’re looking for a super quick, super easy salad for summer BBQs, potlucks or just a quick side for a weeknight dinner, then look no further. This Cucumber, Tomato, and Onion Salad totally has you covered!
I recently made this salad as an accompaniment to our 4th of July dinner. On the 7th of July, my husband officiated his sister’s wedding. His baby sister had asked him if he would get ordained and officiate her wedding a few years ago. Of course, he said yes! 🙂 Since then, he also performed a wedding for some friends of his. Of course, this meant a rehearsal dinner, family gatherings and the wedding itself. Due to all my dietary restrictions, potlucks, eating out, and family BBQ’s are all very difficult. I have found it’s just easier if I bring my own food most of the time. For the rehearsal dinner, I brought a dish of romaine lettuce, sharp shredded cheddar cheese, leftover brisket and the leftover Cucumber, Tomato and Onion Salad. I, quite literally, dumped it all together, put the lid back on the salad dish, gave it a vigorous shake and Voila a dinner salad complete with vinaigrette dressing. Yum!
Cucumber, Tomato, and Onion Salad – Low FODMAP option
Shortly after making this salad, I found out that I needed to switch to a low FODMAP diet due to SIBO (Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth). Cucumbers and tomatoes are allowed on the diet, so I decided to switch up this recipe a bit to make it low FODMAP. It turned out really well. In fact, I think I like it as much, if not a little bit better, than the original recipe. Winner! 🙂 If you are curious about SIBO then click here or interested in the low FODMAP diet, click here.
Really the swaps were super easy. Unfortunately, onion and garlic are no-no’s on the low FODMAP diet. Sad 🙁 So, instead of using onion, I used thinly sliced radish and green onion (only the top green parts!). Otherwise, the recipe is essentially the same.
Fresh, crisp, tangy, healthy, quick and easy to prepare, this Cucumber, Tomato, and Onion Salad hits every mark!
