Orange Tomato Cucumber Salad With Orange and Maple Dressing

Total Time
Prep 10 mins

I have a glut of oranges and tomatoes to use up. I came across a recipe in one of my cookbooks that looked promising, but I changed it so much that it is no longer recognized as where it began! Tangy and light, I loved this as a side dish. Plus it is a beautiful presentation. Would probably be best with garden fresh tomatoes.


  1. Peel the cucumber and then slice it. Cut the slices in half. Place those into a bowl.
  2. Chunk the tomatoes and place them on top of the cucumber.
  3. Peel 1 orange and slice it, then chunk the slices up and put them on top of the tomato.
  4. Slice the second orange in half and, using a hand held juicer (or whatever it is you use to extract orange juice!) juice it.
  5. To the orange juice add the maple syrup and black pepper.
  6. Pour the dressing over the veggies and stir to combine.
  7. Chill until ready to eat.

Just loved the combination of salad vegetables with oranges and the maple syrup added just a touch of sweetness but not too much. Lovely blend of flavours. We all loved it, and I'll definitely make this again. Thanks for sharing!
