Every summer my parents would have a beautiful garden in the back yard. Some years it was a large one with okra, corn, beans, squash, and cucumbers; I even remember growing carrots one year. Other years it was a smaller patch, but it almost always had tomatoes. Tomatoes are pretty easy to grow down here and are prolific in the Southern summer heat. This cool, crisp, and tangy salad is quick, easy, and was a summer staple at our house.
Asian Cucumber Salad
Tomato Cucumber Salad - A Southern Soul
This refreshing Easy Asian Cucumber Salad recipe is perfect for summer! Crisp coins of cucumber with thin slices of pungent red onions and fresh herbs tossed in a silky, tangy umami packed sauce. Updated: This post was originally published in March I took new photos, tweaked the recipe and changed some of the written post below to include more information about the recipe. Hi, friends! Is it just me or does this time in between the winter and spring seasons seriously stink?
South-east Asian tomato and cucumber salad
Serve this colorful chopped tomato, onion, and cucumber salad with or over anything. You can serve it with just about anything. Take a look below for some suggestions. The salad is simple to make — mix finely diced tomatoes, sweet onion, and cucumbers.
This is a delicious light summer salad that is a little on the sweet side rather than than the tangy-vinegary side. Peel the cucumber in stripes lengthwise with a vegetable peeler, alternating skinned stripes with peel for a decorative effect. Slice the cucumber in half lengthwise, and then thinly slice. Place the cucumber in a salad bowl with the tomato and red onion, and mix together.
