This Refreshing Tomato, Cucumber, and Red Onion Salad is a perfect side for a picnic, cookout, or summer lunch!
It’s hard to beat a recipe that can come together in 7 minutes with NO cooking required.
This refreshing tomato, cucumber, and red onion salad is IT, though.
And not only that, it makes for a colorful, fiber-packed side dish to serve at your next picnic, cookout…or just to pack up for that work lunch.
As the temps warm up, I find myself craving more colder foods — fresh fruits, water with allll the electrolytes, OJ, raw carrot slices, and fun salads like this!
Pay attention to the cravings you have as the seasons rotate. We live in rhythms. Lean into it! I’d never want to eat this in the winter…and the ingredients wouldn’t be in season and at their peak flavor, either.
I threw this refreshing tomato, cucumber, and red onion salad together for a Sunday evening get together with some friends from church as we read through the book The Common Rule, and it got rave reviews from everyone who ate it! Hopefully they weren’t just trying to be nice.
It paired well with some homemade pulled pork, avocado oil chips, and fresh watermelon! I think it would also be tasty with some feta tossed in and served with grilled chicken or a burger and potato salad.
I’m really into cookout-inspired food right now, can you tell??
Regardless how you choose to enjoy it, I hope you do just that — ENJOY it!
