Cucumber & Tomato Salad

Are you looking for something fresh, healthy and delicious to make or bring to a summer party? Check out this salad! 
Growing up, this type of salad was always on our breakfast, lunch and dinner table. We were lucky to have fresh veggie from the garden, too. 
You can mix this up by adding radishes or even thinly sliced peppers. You can’t mess this up, really! 
I used to eat this salad with fresh homemade bread and butter. I mean I used to dip the bread in the leftover dressing. Try it. I bet you will love it too! 
I made this batch for a crowd. Cut it down for your needs. I often make an individual bowl just for myself too.
