This juicy salad goes great as a small lunch or served alongside your grilled chicken or a hamburger. You can eat this right away or make it early if you’re saving it for a BBQ. Just cover it and keep it refrigerated until you’re ready to eat.

Ingredients You Need:

  • Baby Cucumbers. If you’re used to full sized cucumbers, these are the same thing, just smaller.
  • Cherry Tomatoes. We take these and cut them in half, but if you’ve got a regular tomato you want to use just cut into small cubes.
