Cucumber & Tomato Salad


It’s pretty much summer here in Miami, meaning most of us will be doing everything possible to stay in shape for the bathing suit season.

This fresh summer salad is one of my go-to recipes. It’s super simple to make, very healthy and delicious.

Ingredients
3 or 4 vine ripe tomatoes
1 large cucumber
2 tbsp skim or light sour cream
1 tbsp non-fat plain Greek yogurt (optional, can also be another tbsp of sour cream)
1 tbsp dill (chopped fresh or this kind)
Sea salt & pepper to taste

Preparation

My favorite tomatoes for this recipe are vine ripe tomatoes, but any kind can be used.

Vine ripe tomatoes taste great (lots of flavor, a little sweetness) and are sturdy, so they will not fall apart when you slice them into wedges.  You will need to slice both the tomatoes and cucumbers into wedges, and the idea is to have equal amounts of each.

In a separate bowl, combine the sour cream, yogurt, dill, sea salt and pepper.

I love using dill in my recipes, but the fresh kind goes bad very quickly.  For this reason, I buy the Garden Gourmet dill, which is 100% natural and organic, and will last up to 3 months in the fridge.

To finish up the salad, combine the cucumber and tomatoes with the sour cream dressing mixture, and enjoy!

Esa ensalada me trae tantos buenos recuerdos, una pena que casi no la como porque ahmed odia el pepino :(. Muy bellos los bowls, lindas las fotos, loved the post.
