It’s so easy to get spoiled during the summer, as produce is plentiful, and needs little help from us to shine. This salad is a perfect example. Ripe, juicy tomatoes, crisp cucumbers, and vibrant fresh-picked mint from the garden come together for a simple, but incredibly satisfying no-cook side dish.

As we often say when talking about Dress It Up Dressing, ingredients this good shouldn’t be disguised—dressing should enhance them, highlighting their innate deliciousness. All this trio of cucumbers, tomatoes, and mint needs is a bit of our Red Wine Vinaigrette, a grating of fresh lemon zest, and some salt to make your taste buds go “whoa”. That was my reaction when I first made. I truly wasn’t expecting such a humble salad to stop me in my tracks, and yet it did.  

1 Cucumber, chopped
½ pint  Grape or cherry tomatoes, cut in half
Handful  Fresh mint, chopped
¼ Freshly grated lemon zest
Sea salt
1 tbsp
DRESS IT UP DRESSING Red Wine Vinaigrette


Add the cucumber, tomatoes, mint, Red Wine Vinaigrette, and lemon zest to a medium bowl. Stir until well mixed. Season with salt to taste before serving.
