Cucumber tomato salad is the perfect side dish for any summer lunch or dinner. It’s refreshing, healthy, delicious and as easy as a salad can be! Made with fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers, onions and herbs and finished off with an apple cider vinaigrette.

Cucumber Tomato Salad with yellow bell peppers, red onions and dill

We consume a lot of tomatoes and cucumbers in our household, mainly because these are the two items of fresh vegetables/fruit that my son eats daily, so we are always stocked up.

And we also had good luck with cherry tomatoes in our vegetable garden, one of the few plants that seems to bear fruit no matter how much we seem to underwater/overwater our small vegetable garden.

So it’s no surprise that this cucumber tomato salad is consumed in our household at least once a week.

What Cucumbers and Tomatoes Are Best for this Salad?

Cucumber Tomato Salad with yellow bell peppers, red onions and dill

You can use any cucumbers and tomatoes for this salad, however, I am partial to English cucumbers for flavor and crispiness. I like that they have less seeds as well.

For tomatoes, cherry tomatoes make things easier and are bite sized and also don’t have a lot of juice – this prolongs the time the salad stays good in the fridge.

How to Make the Apple Cider Vinaigrette for This Salad

I love apple cider vinegar in salads for its taste. I use it all the time in leafy salads or in cole slaws. In this cucumber salad, I just pair it with good olive oil, herbs, salt and pepper and it’s good to go.

You can use other vinegars like balsamic, red wine or rice vinegars as well instead of apple cider vinegar, it just depends on your flavor preference.

What Else Can I Top This Salad With?

Basil, parsley and cilantro are good alternatives to dill.

Avocado, feta, black olives, fresh mozzarella, parmesan, fennel, jicama and celery are just a few of the other options.
