Diced Tomato Cucumber Salad

30 Nov

A refreshing diced tomato cucumber salad.

  • 6 small delicious tomatoes, finely diced (use good quality, fresh, vibrant tomatoes since they are one of the main ingredients of the salad; the tomatoes pictured above are kumato (brown) tomatoes from Canada).
  • 1 english cucumber,  diced into a similar size as the tomato
  • juice of one lime, roll the lime before cutting in order to release more of lime’s juice
  • a generous sprinkle of sea salt
  • a light drizzle of extra virgin olive oil

Kumato variety tomatoes, english cucumber, lime and olive oil.

Combine together all the above ingredients and serve immediately. I like to use this salad more as a topping rather than a side to a main course.  For example, as a cool, refreshing veggie garnish on tacos or on top of some warm fluffy plain brown rice.  This is also an ideal salad to serve during the holidays because of the red and green colour combination.
