Mama’s Crunchy Cucumber Tomato Salad

Aside from my grandma, my mom is the most amazing cook (and woman) that I know. This is one of the most simple recipes of hers and it always takes me back to my childhood. This was my go-to whenever I wasn’t feeling well or when I wanted something flavorful and refreshing. It’s so delicious yet hard to believe that it’s only 4 ingredients. It’s the perfect appetizer or side and only takes about 5 minutes to throw together. It’s all about using quality ingredients and making it with a bit of love. If you love lemon as much as we do, you have to try it!

What You'll Need:

+ 6 mini cucumbers, halved and sliced

+ 4 cups cherry tomatoes, halved

+ Juice of 2 lemons

+ 1/4 – 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper (adjust based on preference)

+ Flaky sea salt to taste (approximately 1-2 tsp.)


1. Slice your cucumbers and dice the tomatoes.

2. Combine with the lemon juice, cayenne pepper and salt.

3. Tip: adjust cayenne pepper according to spice preference and add some feta on top! It’s such a delicious combo. You get the sweetness from the tomatoes, the spice from the cayenne, and the creaminess from the feta. Enjoy!
