Light and refreshing,
this creamy cucumber tomato salad is a hit with any meal!
It’s a classic salad that’s good on its own or served with grilled chicken, fish, pork or burgers or grilled steak. In other words, it’s a tasty side dish that goes for most any meat!
Versions of this salad have been floating around for years, including, vinegar, sugar, yogurt, ranch dressing, mayonnaise, red wine or balsamic vinegar in the dressing, adding all sorts of fruits and veggies the mix: bell peppers, cranberries, grapes, or radishes. Then there are herbs: parsley, dill, basil, and on and on.
This is my take on it: a sour cream, celery salt based dressing combining cherry tomatoes, cucumbers and red onions.
It’s pretty simple, pretty easy, and pretty good!
