Simple tomato cucumber salad

Super crunchy, fresh and extremely easy cucumber, tomato salad is a perfect addition to any dinner. I’m going to be perfectly honest with you, I chopped my cucumber and onion and was planning on mizeria salad but I figured I will try something new. All sorts of cucumber, onion and/or tomato salads, usually with sour cream dressing, are very popular in Eastern Europe but since I wanted something different I swapped it for simple yet delicious olive oil and lemon juice dressing and added some chopped celery and sprinkled fresh parsley on top and that was a great success. Crazy easy, very healthy and cheap on top of it all. This salad is everything.

I chopped a tomato, cucumber, parsley and onion and sliced celery stalks. In a little bowl I mixed olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper, dried oregano and basil. You can go ahead and add your favorite spices.


I mixed all ingredients together. Let sit for 10 minutes, got everything ready for my dinner in the meantime, and served. It’s that easy! Enjoy!
