Easy salad to make and fantastic flavor! I used 2 medium sized cucumbers, 5 plum tomatoes, and apple cider vinegar.. I sprinkled everything on, tasted, then adjusted from there. I did need a good amount of salt but went easy on the oregano, oil, and vinegar. Want to make this again soon! Made and reviewed for KC's European Forum's The Big Fat Greek Tag Game!

Very refreshing & pretty summer salad! I, too, cut the recipe way back as I'm the only one that eats tomatoes & cucumbers. For my 1 tomato and 1 cucumber, I used 4 tsp each of oil & vinegar, 1 tsp of oregano and 1/2 tsp of salt.

I scaled this down to have as a side for myself for dinner tonight. I thought the flavor was very light and fresh. I ended up using 1/2 a roma tomato and a 1/4 of a cucumber. I omitted the salt because I am trying to reduce the amount of sodium I consume; I appreciate the fact that this dish was simple yet still flavorful even without the added salt. I plan on making this again and experimenting with different herbs to see what other flavors I can come up with. Thanks for posting!!!!!

Discuss the taste, how difficult it was to make, any adaptations you made or menu suggestions. If you did not like it, please explain why or provide constructive criticism. We have plenty of tomatoes and cucumbers this year and this is a nice and easy way and it goes well on presentation

Very quick and easy and tasty! I didn't, but you could add other things to this like kalamata olives, feta, red pepper, etc.

Yum! I need a quick salad to serve with Sauteed Chicken With Cherry Tomatoes and I choose to make this salad. This recipe is very similar to my mother's recipe, in which the amounts are not stated, as it depends on taste bugs. I cut the serving to serve two people and used 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 1/4 teaspoon oregano, 1 teaspoon white vinegar and a small sprinkle of salt. Both Little Miss (DD) and hubby enjoyed this recipe. Thank you MeliBug - *Made for Zaar World Tour 4*

This was easy to throw together. I used tiny field cucumbers and grape tomatoes. I prefer recipes with amounts listed, but this was very easy to get right. Made for ZWT4.

Made for ZWT4...This was very good. I made it with home grown tomatoes and cucumbers. This is a very simple salad that I will make often.
