Summer Cucumber/Tomato/Onion Salad


It’s summer here in NW Arkansas right now and the farmers markets and stands are everywhere with fresh vegetables.  I even have a pot with grape tomatoes growing on my deck.  So I decided to use some fresh veggies for a cool salad using cucumbers, tomatoes and purple onions.


  • One large Cucumber, peeled, sliced and halved.
  • Grape or Cherry tomatoes, 10-12 whole or halved
  • Purple onion, 1 small, chopped
  • Olive Oil, 3 tablespoons
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Cutting board and knife
  • Vegetable peeler
  • Mixing bowl with lid
  • Serving bowl and fork or spoon to serve


  1.  Wash tomatoes and cucumber
  2. Peel cucumber using vegetable peeler (I have a great one from Cutco), slice across into 1/2 inch slices and then cut those slices in half
  3. Place in mixing bowl
  4. Wash grape/cherry tomatoes
  5. Use whole cherry or grape tomatoes or cut themin half and place in mixing bowl
  6.  Chop your purple onion into smaller pieces and place in mixing bowl
  7. Add salt and pepper to taste
  8. Drizzle olive oil over mixture in bowl
  9. Place lid on bowl and shake to mix well
  10. Refrigerate or serve immediately
  11. Serve cold from the frig in salad bowls


Makes 2 nice servings
