Tomato Cucumber Salad is one of my go-to recipes. It takes simple vegetable ingredients I usually have on hand because I have a backyard garden, and it is super-fast to make, and under 10 minutes to prepare. I make this a lot during the summer when tomatoes and cucumbers are abundant. It is perfect for picnics and BBQs. It does not have to be refrigerated, and it is even vegan-friendly so that everyone can enjoy this. Tomato Cucumber Salad is a refreshing dish that packs a punch of fresh flavor. It is simple to make with a bright dressing full of herbs. This salad is one delightful salad that is like a burst of summer on your plate!
