FAQs

Can I use full-sized cucumbers?

Yes, feel free. I like to use baby cucumbers, they are the most crunchy and add a really nice bite.

Can I make this dish in advance?

You can slice your tomatoes, cucumbers and onions a few hours in advance, but don’t mix in the dressing as that tends to make the tomatoes go a little soft.

Can I use fresh herbs instead of dried herbs?

Yes, fresh herbs are really nice to use in this one. I would suggest dill, parsley or basil.

How To Store Cucumber and Tomato Salad

Drain any excess liquid from the salad. Put it in an airtight container and store it in the fridge for up to 2 days. Beyond that, the vegetables will start to turn mushy and lose their freshness. I don’t recommend freezing the salad; the high water content in the veggies will lead to them turning to mush upon thawing.
