Sometimes I will add additional ingredients if I have them on hand. Here are some of my favorites:

  • Avocado
  • Red onion
  • Fresh basil
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Miniature mozzarella pearls

Cucumber Tomato Salad with Balsamic and Dill


  • 3 cups miniature cucumbers, sliced and halved
  • 3 cups grape tomatoes, sliced
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • ¾ teaspoon dried dill


Peel and slice the cucumbers, then cut the slices in half. Slice the tomatoes into halves or thirds depending on the size of each tomato. Toss the cucumbers, tomatoes, olive oil, balsamic vinegar and dill together in a large bowl. Garnish with a little extra dill if desired and serve!

Cooking Notes:

  • Any type of cucumber can be used for this recipe. I prefer the miniature cucumbers as they are the perfect size when you cut the slices in half.
  • Any type of tomato can be used for this recipe. I prefer to use grape tomatoes which are easy to slice into halves or thirds.
  • Substitute 1 tablespoon of fresh dill.
  • This salad can be made ahead of time and stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
