Creamy Cucumber and Tomato Salad

Cucumber and Tomato Salad mixed in a creamy sauce that compliments many main dishes and adds a healthy side to your week-night dinner.

Perfect as a side dish for an indulgent steak or chicken main, this cucumber and tomato salad will be a lovely, creamy gap filler to guarantee complete satisfaction at the end of a hearty meal. 

The great thing about this cucumber and tomato salad is that it adds freshness and crunchiness to a meal that might be fairly rich and indulgent, allowing for a break from the succulence, while at the same time complementing its flavours and textures, making you want to go back for more! 

The sauce for the salad is made from a tangy mayonnaise, sour cream, and vinegar, and seasoned with dill and garlic powder. Needless to say, the sauce is a burst of flavours that exude from its rich and creamy base. This salad is also a great excuse to get those veggies in. Cucumbers and tomatoes are full of nutrients, and are a great source of vitamin C and K. They also contain antioxidants, and since cucumbers are made up of mostly water, they aid in hydration too!

Opt for a healthier side to this Creamy Cucumber and Tomato Salad

If you would like this salad to be a tad bit healthier, use a low-fat mayonnaise and sour cream.
