Cucumber Tomato Salad - The Southern Lady Cooks

Cucumber tomato salad is one of our favorite summer salads.  My family loves this salad and it is wonderful with any meal.  Take it to a gathering and you won’t bring any home.  This recipe could be doubled if you want to make it for a crowd.  Cucumber tomato salad keeps well for several days refrigerated.  You might also like to check out our recipe for watermelon and tomato salad.

Cucumber tomato salad ingredients needed:




Green pepper

Mayonnaise (I used Dukes)

Apple cider vinegar




Black pepper

The dressing on this salad is very creamy and gives it such a wonderful flavor. It’s really refreshing cold right out of the fridge. It would be a great side dish for any summer meal. I thought it was great the next day, too!
