Crisp and Refreshing Spicy Tomato Cucumber Salad

Empty headingThe weather is heating up in Kentucky, and we need something that’s a breeze to make while being a refreshing treat. Thankfully Donya from A Southern Soul provided us with this Spicy Tomato Cucumber Salad. This salad is loaded with fresh vegetables in a bright, crisp and spicy herb dressing and a generous portion of creamy feta cheese. It had our mouths watering, and we promise you yours will be too by the end of this recipe.

What makes this salad so good?

Donya says some of the reasons that this salad is so good is due to how you can make it in less than 15 minutes, how all these vegetables are available year-round, and the homemade dressing with Dan-O’s Original and Spicy seasoning is full of incredible flavor and gives the right amount of heat.

Donya’s tips and tricks

Now Donya has a few tips and tricks for you on this salad. If you can’t find any balsamic vinegar, you can substitute red wine or apple cider vinegar instead. You could leave out the red onion if you don’t enjoy them but she recommends swapping it for a Vidalia onion instead of omitting the onion all together. Vidalia offers a milder flavor if that’s your preference. Don’t be deterred if you can’t find grape tomatoes, any tomatoes will do as long as you cut them down to bite size. And finally, Donya recommends making this salad ahead of time so all the ingredients can marinate together and create a melody of flavors that can’t be beat.
