Cucumber and Tomato Salad is my husband’s favorite, so I make it quite often and not just for dinner or lunch. The other day, when I asked him what he wanted for breakfast, his request was fried eggs and the Cucumber and Tomato Salad. I know, super typical. I mean, who doesn’t have a salad with their eggs for breakfast, right? đŸ˜€

Then, one day I was trying cleaning out the fridge and found a lonely log of goat cheese and of course I had to utilize it in the best way I know. I added it to my favorite Cucumber and Tomato combination and it was the best thing ever. It’s almost like adding a sour cream dressing, but better. If you’ve never made a Cucumber Tomato Goat Cheese Salad, I am inviting you to! You won’t regret it!

Ingredients for the Easy Cucumber Tomato Goat Cheese Salad

  • Use regular chopped tomatoes if that’s what you have on hand. Cherry tomatoes keep their shape well and look better for esthetic purposes.
  • Dill and olives are optional.
