Ingredients, notes, and substitutes

  • Tomatoes: we used Roma tomatoes but you may use any other tomatoes of choice.
  • Cucumbers: our choice of cucumbers was garden cucumbers. Go ahead and use whatever you have available.
  • Onion: Red onions are milder and better to use in salads. But if it isnt readily available you may use white onions
  • Parsley: Its important to use fresh parsley instead of dried parsley. They add a great flavor to the salad.
  • Feta Cheese: Please use feta cheese. If you dont like feta cheese, you can use another crumbly cheese like cotija
  • For the dressing: olive oil, lemon juice, fresh garlic cloves, ground cumin, salt, and pepper.
  • Storage: Store leftovers in a container in the fridge for up to 3 days

frequently asked questions

Should I peel Cucumber for salad?

It all depends on the type of cucumber you are using and the maturity of the cucumber. Cucumbers with thinner skins that don’t need to be peeled are English or Persian cucumbers. Market cucumbers have thicker skins and are probably better peeled when using for salads.

How long does cucumber tomato salad last in the fridge?

Cumcumber tomato salad lasts for up to a week. But we like to recommend consuming it within 3 days because the tomatoes and cucumbers will get a bit soggy as time goes by.

Can you make this salad ahead of time?

Absolutely. Chop the veggies and store them in a container in the fridge until ready to use. Do not mix the vegetables with the dressing until you are ready to serve. Alternatively, you can also make and store the dressing seperately.
