Cucumber Tomato Salad

Y’all, are you aware that Memorial Day is next weekend? I honestly can’t believe it, myself. This year has just *flown* by, and the only reason I can really accept that it’s actually Memorial Day weekend coming up is that The Brit and I are going to Florida Keys for five glorious days.

It’s our first time, and I’m so excited! If you have any tips, restaurant recommendations, or photo spots for me, please make sure to leave them in the comments.

But before I jet off into the sun, I want to make sure you have your Memorial Day recipes on lock down.

This super easy, super simple, absolutely delicious salad is a favorite of my nan’s. She keeps a tupperware of it on the go in her refrigerator at all times, topping it up with more of each of the ingredients as it starts looking a little sparse.

The beauty of this cucumber and tomato salad is that it comes together in minutes, but gets better the longer you let it sit. You can eat it five minutes after you make it, or five days.


 
It’s the perfect side to barbecue, fried chicken, or anything else you’d like to serve up this Memorial Day Weekend. Serve it along side Nan’s Famous Potato Salad, and some brisket. My mouth is watering just thinking about it!

The recipe is really more of a formula, so feel free to divide or multiply in accordance with however much you need for your crowd.

I am jealous that it's brisket weekend. I have to smoke it myself if I want brisket weekend around here. And we haven't taken the plunge and bought a smoker yet.

This looks like the perfect lunch ever...it's so much fun taking produce out of your own garden. So much more fun that out of a grocery cart!
