Cucumber Tomato Salad with lemon poppy seed dressing is a simple and delicious salad, perfect for lunch or with dinner. It’s a great way to keep summer food flavors going into fall.
Welcome to the Sepetember Pinterest Challenge Blog Hop! The purpose of this Pinterest Challenge is to motivate all the participants of this hop (and you too) to not just pin, but to make it happen! So this month, I chose to make a Cucumber Tomato Salad with a Lemon Poppy Seed Dressing from this pin. The recipe is from The Slow Roasted Italian and her site is amazing. Previously, I have tried (with great success) these pins: Tex-Mex Chicken Foil Packets, Homemade Banana Cream Pie and Kielbasa, Peppers, and Potato Hash.
I absolutely love salads with cucumbers, and could eat the vegetable on its own all day long. My favorite thing about this recipe is the lemon dressing with the poppy seeds. When I saw this recipe on Pinterest, it was a no-brainer for me to make this, and hope that no one else in the family would want me to share. Well, they did want me to share (darn!), so I just made the salad again the next day and it, too was gone in a flash! It’s that good, ya’ll!
If I’m being honest here, I wanted to add some fresh corn to this salad because it’s a thing and I had a couple of ears to use up. Well, I waited too long and the corn just wasn’t fresh enough for the salad. So, no corn. BUT, it would have been so good in this!
