Cucumber Tomato Layered Salad

Printed from:


Serves: 6

1 medium size or 1/2 a large sweet onion (Walla Walla works nicely)

1/4 cup grapeseed or olive oil

1/4 cup organic apple cider vinegar

2 long English cucumbers

20-30 cherry tomatoes or 1-2 large tomatoes (any tomato works fine for the recipe)

1 Tablespoon dried oregano flakes (or to taste)

Salt and freshly ground pepper


For a beautiful presentation of colors on this appealing salad, we like to use a shallow glass dish like a glass pie plate or bowl to prepare and serve the salad.

1. Slice the onion into thin slices and line the bottom of the dish.

2. Add a bit of salt and cracked pepper and drizzle on approximately 2 tablespoons of oil and stir in to coat the onions. Slice the cucumbers into thin slices.

3. Place a layer of cucumbers over the onions. Gently mix the onions and cucumber together.

4. Sprinkle on a teaspoonful of oregano. Sprinkle salt and pepper.

5. Add 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar and mix gently with a spatula to combine flavors.

6. Slice the tomatoes and the second cucumber and create a couple more layers of tomatoes and cucumber.

7. Drizzle another 3 teaspoons (or cap-fuls) of the apple cider vinegar and 1-2 tablespoons of oil.

8. Sprinkle on a little more freshly ground pepper, salt and oregano flakes. Let sit on the counter 15 minutes before serving.
