Cucumber Tomato Mint Salad | When the cucumbers and tomatoes are in season, I go a little crazy. Can you blame me? We eat one of three cucumber and/or tomato salads just about every day. Here's one of my favorites! | GNOWFGLINS.com

We don’t get enough of cucumber season. So when the cucumbers and tomatoes are in season at the Farmers’ Market or in our garden, I do go a little crazy. Can you blame me?

We eat one of three cucumber and/or tomato salads just about every day. I already shared one with you — the cucumber yogurt/kefir salad — and this post includes another. If you’re counting, that means I still have one more to show you. ;)

Mediterranean Cucumber-Tomato-Mint Salad

Even though the salad pictured doesn’t include feta cheese, I do add it whenever I can — my homemade feta is a raw, cultured food, making this a probiotic dish. Using one of the raw vinegars or Kombucha also adds beneficial organisms.

  • a couple of garden cucumbers, peeled and diced (or not peeled, up to you)
  • a couple of vine-ripe tomatoes
  • 1/2 an onion, diced
  • feta cheese (optional)
  • crushed garlic (optional)
  • sea salt and pepper, to taste
  • organic extra virgin olive oil, to taste
  • fresh lemon juice, to taste (or raw apple cider vinegar, coconut vinegar, or Kombucha)
  • dried mint, a few generous pinches (more if fresh)

Toss all ingredients together in a salad bowl. Easy-peasy! Best eaten when fresh, although this does keep for a day or so in the refrigerator.

    Wardee!
    I’ve been making this salad all summer!

    I also love to add an avocado, sprouted mung beans, sprouted lentils, sprouted (cooked) black beans, and sunflower seeds. These additions make this a meal! I make up a batch and eat it mostly every day for lunch…it’s so satisfying. Of course, now that I’ve learned how to make sourdough English muffins, I usually have one of those as well. : )

    Thanks for sharing! I can’t wait to see what else you do with cucumbers!

    In terms of salads, I just love anything with tomatoes – good thing my garden is full of them! Your cucumber tomato mint salad sounds lovely and refreshing – I’ll definitely be trying it.

    Wardee, your photo is absolutely stunning as well, you’ve really captured the freshness and colors perfectly. Beautifully done. xo
