The Best & Easiest SUMMER SALAD

the best & easiest summer salad

This is the best & easiest summer salad to make during these hot, dry California summer days! It’s a super light & refreshing side dish that would pair perfectly with  grilled chicken kabobs or juicy burgers on the grill. Freshly chopped tomatoes, diced cucumber, fresh parsley, thinly sliced onion & a little S & P – that’s literally it! Feel free to sprinkle this with goat cheese for a little extra kick & flavor!


  • 1 C cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 C cucumber, diced
  • 1/4 C yellow onion, thinly sliced (get your hands on a mandolin slicer to make for easy slicing and chopping!)
  • Lemon juice, to taste
  • Parsley, to garnish
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  1. Mix all ingredients together and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes prior to serving.
  3. Garnish with freshly chopped parsley.

*NOTE:* This is best served if you let everything marinate together in the refrigerator for one hour prior to serving.

*NOTE:* Store in an air tight container or Tupperware for no longer than 2-3 days.
