Fresh Heirloom Tomato and English Cucumber Salad

salad, side dish | December 7, 2015 | By

As a mom, I am ALWAYS looking for ways to get my kids to eat healthy food.  It’s not always easy or pretty!  However, I’ve learned through trial and error that kids will eat anything that tastes good…or ANYTHING they help make. 😉

They learned this recipe from their Nana recently, and it has quickly become a quick go-to side dish in our home.  Chef Fresh slices up the onions because Chef Jess’ eyes tear up too much.  She slices the tomatoes and cukes, while I whisk up the dressing.  In 10 minutes we have a really tasty side dish. 🙂

This is really great for picnics, but also as a accompaniment to a savory winter recipe that needs some lightening up.  I also imagine that you could kick this up for a filling lunch by adding chicken salad or tuna salad.  Yum!

Faith, Family, Food…In THAT order
