Simple Cucumber Tomato Salad

Serves 4

This is one of my favorite go-to salads because it is incredibly easy, versatile, and you can tweak it with all kinds of ingredients.  Tonight I added some dried basil from my grandma’s garden, and feta cheese.  A few weeks ago, I added hearts of palm, sliced red onions and olives.


  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 can artichoke hearts, quartered
  • 3 small Persian cucumbers, peeled, halved and sliced
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/8 cup champagne vinaigrette (balsamic or Italian would also work here)
1.)  In a medium bowl, toss together all ingredients.
