This simple Tomato Cucumber Salad recipe is bright, light, fresh, and delicious. It’s an easy summer salad made with English cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, crunchy red onion, and covered in a sweet and tangy oil-free dressing.



  • 1 English cucumber, sliced
  • 1 pint of cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
  • 1/2 red onion thinly sliced (I used a mandoline slicer)

For The Dressing

  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Slice the cucumber, tomatoes, and onion and place them in a large mixing bowl. 
  2. Add the dressing ingredients to a separate small bowl and whisk until everything is well combined.
  3. Pour over the cukes, tomatoes, and onion. Toss well to coat.
  4. You can serve immediately but I think it’s best once it’s chilled in the fridge for 30 minutes. 


If you don’t have an English cucumber regular cukes will work. But, I would scoop out the seeds and peel the cucumber.
