This is a very simple salad. My mom would make it as a side dish for omlettes for brunch. I usually serve it with grilled steak or by itself. for those of you who do WW, this is 1 point per serving.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In your serving bowl, put the cucumbers and salt and toss.
  2. Set it to the side for 10 minutes.
  3. Cucumbers will"sweat".
  5. This is part of your salad dressing.
  6. Add the tomatoes, scallions and olive oil and toss.
  7. Put it in the fridge until you are ready to eat.
  8. The longer it sits, the better it tastes.

Perfect! I left the cuke seeds in because I like them, and added lots of cracked black pepper. Thank you for the idea--I tend to eat tomatoes and cukes separately. I tried it twice, once using salt first, and the second using it only as a seasoning rather than a leeching ingredient. I prefer the results using it as a topping, where you can still get that crunch. I bet some slivered mint or basil might also taste good. Thanks for a winner!

I'm always amazed when something this easy to make tastes so incredibly delicious. This was a great way to use our tomatoes from our garden.Thanks for posting this wonderful recipe!

I started taking this to work for lunch every day this summer since I have an abundance of fresh tomatoes from my garden. I add lots of cracked black pepper because I love it with tomatoes! Lite and healthy! Thanks :)
