Tomato Cucumber and Olive Salad

Tomato Cucumber and Olive Salad is easy to make!
Tomato Cucumber and Olive Salad has been making a weekly appearance at our dinner table the last few weeks since it's so easy to make! It's one of those recipes that can be made in the morning and only gets better after a few hours marinating in the fridge, making it perfect for all those summer barbecues and picnics. 

I created a red wine vinaigrette and left out feta for this recipe making it only slightly different then this Tomato Cucumber Herb Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette and used a little different ingredients then our beloved Greek Salad. At first I wasn't even going to share this recipe but sometimes different variations of favorite recipes may help accommodate a choosy eater who dislikes cheese or someone who has food sensitivities. It can also give tried and true recipe the family likes to enjoy on a regular basis just enough change that no one tires of it.

It's a simple salad worthy of only the freshest summertime tomatoes and cucumbers that is a staple in our house.

Slice 2 English Cumbers. I prefer to leave the skin on english cucumbers since the skins so tender but when I use regular cucumbers I will peel the tough skin.
Add 4-5 Ripe Tomatoes cut into wedges, 1/2 a Diced Red Onion, 1/2 cup Kalamata Olives, 1 tablespoon Chopped Fresh Dill, and 1 tablespoon Chopped Fresh Rosemary.
Whisk together 1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and 3 tablespoons Red Wine Vinegar, add Salt and Pepper to taste. Drizzle vinaigrette over salad, and toss until well combined.
Tomato Cucumber and Olive Salad is easy to make and perfect for summertime barbecues and picnics.
Refrigerate if time allows for flavors to mingle or serve immediately. 
Tomato Cucumber and Olive Salad is easy to make in under 10 minutes and flavor only improves after refrigeration. Perfect for summertime barbecues and picnics!
I hope you enjoy Tomato Cucumber and Olive Salad as much as we do. It's simple easy and delicious.
