Cucumber Tomato Goat Cheese Salad Recipe

Cucumber Tomato Salad is a refreshing spin on a classic, as the crisp veggies replace the standard lettuce. This salad has the welcome addition of tomatoes, black olives, and creamy goat cheese for an unexpected creaminess and tang that’s out of this world.

If you’re a fellow cucumber tomato salad fan, you’ll really love this cucumber salad with dill, this Greek salad, and this yummy cucumber salad with creamy dressing.

Cucumber Salad

Cucumber salad with tomato is my husband’s favorite. The other day, when I asked him what he wanted for breakfast, his request was fried eggs and this salad. Who doesn’t have a salad with eggs for breakfast, right? 😉

To be fair, there really is something magical about the combination of crisp, crunchy cucumbers and juicy tomatoes. You get all the best textures in one tasty bite!

I found one way to improve on my favorite salad recently:  goat cheese! By adding goat cheese into the cucumber salad, you get a creamy, tangy base note—it’s almost like adding a sour cream dressing, but better.

Tips for Making the Goat Cheese Salad

  • Cocktail Cucumbers are best for this recipe, but you’re welcome to use regular English Cucumbers instead.
  • Use regular chopped tomatoes if that’s what you have on hand. However, cherry tomatoes keep their shape well and look better.
  • Dill and olives are optional, but recommended!
  • Use the best goat cheese you can afford. It’s definitely worth the investment since it’s a vital part of the goat cheese salad.

How to Make the Tomato Salad with Goat Cheese

Making the tomato salad is easy. Chop the veggies up, then combine all the ingredients, including the goat cheese with the olive oil. Toss with salad tongs to coat— enjoy!
