Recipe: Cucumber Tomato Salad

This easy summer salad has been a go-to for us for the past couple weeks. We most often eat it with falafel. With only 5 ingredients and minimal preparation, it makes a yummy addition to any meal and a great choice for a summer partay. As a side note, you don’t have to seed the tomato if you don’t want to (or feel like it), it just helps to reduce the liquid in the finished product. If you do decide to go ahead with the seeding, don’t throw that stuff away! You did pay for it after all and it is delicious. We usually collect it in a bowl, add a little salt and pepper, and then fight over who gets to eat it.
