This salad cucumber and tomato salad recipe is so easy and delicious. You can eat it on its own but I love making it as a side dish. It is refreshing while the onions give it that extra kick. Another great thing about this dish is that it can be enjoyed year round. I like to pair it with grilled chicken breasts and quinoa with a lemon garlic sauce.
