Classic Cucumber & Tomato Salad

I'm all about providing you guys with the simplest recipes that you can incorporate into your daily lives. This Classic Cucumber & Tomato Salad is my GO-TO salad to meal prep or make when I'm low on fresh produce. And honestly you can't get sick of it, it's such a refreshing salad.

Persians have a version of this salad called the "Shirazi Salad" that calls for cucumber, tomato, green bell pepper, and red onion. I grew up with a version of the one I made and I tend to add radish and parsley to it as well.

You can prep this salad with any lean protein you desire as well such as - tofu, chicken breast, steak, etc. Make sure to also add a source of carbs such as - basmati rice, baked potato, pita bread, quinoa, bulgur, etc. You always want to make a balanced meal and keep yourself well-nourished.

Let me stop talking and let's get to this quick & easy recipe!
