“Wow this is delicious, can I drink the juice?”

A few years ago we had a potluck get-together.  I wanted to bring a healthy option that everyone would actually eat.  I thought my FAVORITE side dish, mom’s cucumber tomato salad, would be perfect!  She made this salad next to a traditional recipe that came from my great grandmother that I like to call “flip over rice lasagna” (recipe coming soon).  

The reactions we received on the potluck side dish were very surprising.  Everyone initially went through the line and took a small spoonful to try (partly because they felt like they should have SOMETHING healthy on that plate lol).  After the first taste the comments were:

“Wait, what did you say was in this?” 
“Wow, this is delicious, can I drink the juice”
“Can I take the rest?”  

This salad is now the most requested side dish (and recipe) for us to bring to events.  
Hope you love it as much as we do 🙂 



  1. Dice the cucumber, tomatoes and onion into 1/4 inch pieces and put into a large bowl.
  2. Lightly drizzle the olive oil, vinegar, and lemon all over the top.  Make sure to evenly distribute it all over the veggies.
  3. Evenly sprinkle the salt all over the veggies and wet ingredients.  
  4. Toss to incorporate all the ingredients together.
  5. Taste for added salt if needed – season to taste.
  6. Enjoy!
