A light and refreshing tomato and cuc salad, with a Greek twist. All the better if your veggies are home grown!
- 3 large tomatoes
- 1 large cucumber
- 2 green onions
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1⁄2 lemon, juice of
- salt and pepper, to taste
- Peel tomatoes and cut into wedges, wash cucumber and core skin with the tines of fork (or you can peel completely) and cut into thin slices. Slice onion using some of the green tops, and then combine all the veggies with the oregano in a salad bowl.
- Mix together olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper, taste and adjust (if you like lots of tang you may want more lemon, more oil if you like it mild). Pour dressing over salad and gently toss to mix.
- Serve right away or let the salad and dressing mingle awhile - I like mine to sit for 15 minutes or so.
A lovely, light, refreshing salad great on a hot summer night! Made as directed & everyone loved it. Very quick & simple to make. Made for ZWT9, Mike & the Appliance Killers.
My ingredients were not the freshest and I can imagine this being even more stellar with fresh picked tomatoes and cukes from the garden. As it was, it was very easy to put together and made for a refreshing dinner salad. We let the salad sit as recommended and DH thought it benefitted from a little more oregano. Thanks! Made for ZWT 9.
This is a really quick, light, and refreshing salad, using ingredients I usually have on hand. Great for summertime. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
