Tomato Cucumber Onion Salad

We used to eat a similar salad at a little Italian Bistro. We loved the simplicity of it. Easy to make but it still impresses company. In the summer when I have too many zucchini I substitute it for the cucumber.


  1. Chop cucumbers, tomato, and onion into large pieces.
  2. Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
  3. Add cracked black pepper and serve.

Excellent! I think the red onion and balsamic vinegar make this salad special.

I used two cucumbers instead of one, added 1/4 cup feta cheese, and used grape tomatoes instead of roma. Very easy and tasty! Filling, too!

Absolutely awesome. I thinly slice all the ingredients using my mandalin. I always use roma tomatoes and have used white wine balsamic vinegar on occasion. I have also added sliced black olives once in awhile. Serve at room temp for the best flavor. I love this as a side to grilled steaks or salmon.
