Ingredients

  • 1 large English cucumber (thinly sliced)
  • ¼ of a red onion (or sweet onion - thinly sliced)
  • 3 medium tomatoes (or 10 ounces of cherry or grape tomatoes)
  • Handful of chopped fresh herbs of choice (I used parsley and basil)
  • ¼ cup vegan feta (optional)
  • 1 avocado (optional)

Vinaigrette

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic (minced)
  • ½ teaspoon sugar (or maple syrup)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • Pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Slice the cucumbers, tomatoes and onions. Dice your avocado. Chop your fresh herbs.
  • Add all of the vegetables, herbs and vegan cheese to a large mixing bowl.
    1 large English cucumber, ¼ of a red onion, 3 medium tomatoes, 1 avocado, ¼ cup vegan feta, Handful of chopped fresh herbs of choice
  • Mix all of the vinaigrette ingredients in a small jar and stir well. Pour it over the cucumber salad.
    1 tablespoon olive oil, 2 tablespoons white vinegar, 1 clove garlic, ½ teaspoon sugar, ¼ teaspoon salt, Pepper to taste
  • Taste and adjust the seasonings as needed. Let chill in the fridge, covered, for at least an hour

Notes

If you'd like this to be a little less watery, de-seed the tomatoes and cucumbers (you don't have to de-seed an english cucumber, as it doesn't have a lot of seeds to begin with)
