  • 2 large cucumbers, thinly sliced
  • 4 ripe tomatoes, diced
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: 1/4 cup pitted Kalamata olives, sliced


  1. Prepare the Vegetables: Start by washing the cucumbers and tomatoes thoroughly under cold water. Pat them dry with a clean kitchen towel. Slice the cucumbers thinly and dice the tomatoes into bite-sized pieces. Thinly slice the red onion. If using olives, slice them as well.
  2. Combine the Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, combine the sliced cucumbers, diced tomatoes, sliced red onion, chopped parsley, and chopped basil. Toss gently to mix the ingredients evenly.
  3. Make the Dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together the extra virgin olive oil, red wine vinegar, minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Adjust the seasoning to taste.
  4. Dress the Salad: Pour the dressing over the cucumber and tomato mixture in the large bowl. Use salad tongs or a large spoon to gently toss the salad until the vegetables are coated evenly with the dressing.
  5. Optional Garnish: If desired, add the sliced Kalamata olives to the salad and toss to combine.
  6. Chill and Serve: Cover the salad bowl with plastic wrap or a lid and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together. Before serving, give the salad a final toss and adjust the seasoning if needed.
