Cherry Tomato Salad

My co-worker, Chris gave me this simple and healthy salad recipe. Very easy to make and definitely a hit to everyone.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 cups ripe cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 4 pcs baby cucumbers, peeled and diced (or 1 small English cucumber)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced or pressed (or 1 tsp.  garlic powder)
  • 1/2 medium red onion, sliced
  • 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
  • salt to taste

Optional

  • 1/3 cup of mozzarella cheese
  • 1-2 tbsp. fresh parsley, minced

For the dressing, you can use Italian salad dressing, Raspberry Walnut Vinaigrette or Sweet Vinegar and Extra Virgin Olive Oil (this is what I used and I liked it!).

You can also make your own dressing by combining 1 tsp. of red wine and 2 tsp. extra virgin olive oil and add sugar to taste.

DIRECTION:

Combine all ingredients. Chill in the fridge for 20 – 30 minutes.

Enjoy!
