Healthy Cucumber-Tomato Salad

Healthy Cucumber-Tomato Salad created by Ashley Cuoco

Since I don't like salad dressing, I created this simple salad. Not only is it yummy but it is better for you since the only dressing it does have is the one it creates. After we finish eating the veggies, I like to strain the seeds out of the juice and use it as a salad dressing substitute on a green salad. Since you make it in a bowl with a sealable lid, it is great for picnics or potlucks. The prep time also includes refrigeration time.

    This is a very close to what a ‘real’ Greek salad is (sans the feta cheese) except we used fresh mint in the summer & oregano instead of basil ;) it’s what I grew up eating - tomatoes, cucumbers, red onions, and we added a simple dressing to dunk your bread in!

    I make this quite often, but I add a bit of rice wine vinegar, and just a little bit of feta cheese to give it a bit more flavor. It is still low fat and healthy with these additions.
