Cucumber and Tomato Salad Ingredients

English Cucumber: I prefer to use English (also called hothouse) cucumber for this recipe. They have a thinner, less bitter, skin that makes them a great option for using in salads.

Cherry Tomatoes: you’ll need one pint of cherry tomatoes for this recipe. You can use tomatoes of any color.

Red Onion: a bit of red onion gives this salad some delicious flavor.

Feta Cheese: creamy and salty feta cheese is so delicious in this salad. I prefer to keep it cubed instead of crumbled for this recipe.

Parsley: last but not least you’ll need a bit of fresh parsley for the final touch of bright herby flavor.
