My summer Go-to recipe: tomato and cucumber salad!

In summer, when it starts to get hot, I just want something refreshing and avoid turning on my oven. So, I always have plenty of salad ideas on hand, with no cooking involved.

But one of the salads I make most often is this tomato and cucumber salad. It goes with everything: Quiches, Pastas or many other recipes like my Zucchini Pancakes, Spanakopita or these famous Smashed Potatoes.

To pimp up this tomato and cucumber salad recipe, I added red onions, sun-dried tomatoes and chickpeas, all seasoned up with chopped parsley. For the dressing, I recommend a classic salad dressing based on olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
