Hi Friends! It’s Katie from Made to be a Momma here again to share a simple and delicious summer side dish. You only need a few simple ingredients and it’s perfect to serve for summer barbecues, birthday parties or you can adjust the ingredients to just make it for yourself too!
The base of this summer salad are tomatoes and cucumbers. One of my favorite ways to eat these seasonal veggies is with a simple drizzle of balsamic vinegar but sometimes we like to spruce it up a little bit. We like to add some dill to our creamy salad but you can omit it if it isn’t your favorite.
The creamy sauce is almost just as simple to make as slicing some cucumbers and dicing tomatoes. If serving this dish for a party I recommend making the sauce ahead of time but only adding it to the veggies about 30 minutes before serving. This will help keep the veggies from getting mushy.
Creamy Tomato & Cucumber Salad
- 1 cup cucumbers, diced
- 1 cup tomato, diced
FOR THE SAUCE:
- 1/4 cup Mayo
- 1 TBSP vinegar, white
- 1 1/2 tsp. sugar

- Place diced cucumbers and tomatoes in a medium size serving bowl. In a small bowl whisk together sauce ingredients until mixed throughly. Pour over cucumbers and tomatoes. Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to use.
