Marinated Cucumber, Onion, and Tomato Salad is a refreshing and light dish, perfect for warm weather or as a healthy side dish. The simple marinade brings out the fresh flavors of the vegetables, making it a deliciously tangy and crisp salad.


  • 2 medium cucumbers, thinly sliced
  • 1 large red onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 medium tomatoes, cut into wedges
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar or white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Optional: 2 tablespoons fresh herbs (like dill, parsley, or basil), chopped
  • Optional: 1 garlic clove, minced


  1. In a large bowl, combine the sliced cucumbers, sliced red onion, and tomato wedges.
  2. In a separate small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, olive oil, sugar, salt, pepper, and minced garlic (if using) until well combined. This will be your marinade.
  3. Pour the marinade over the vegetables in the bowl. Toss gently to ensure all the vegetables are coated evenly.
  4. If using, sprinkle the chopped fresh herbs over the salad and toss again.
  5. Cover and refrigerate the salad for at least 30 minutes, or up to 2 hours, to allow the flavors to meld together.
  6. Give the salad a gentle stir before serving.
  7. Serve chilled or at room temperature.
