Creamy Tomato and Cucumber Salad makes a fantastic summer side. Sliced tomatoes, cucumbers, and onions are tossed in a creamy dressing made from mayonnaise, sour cream, cider vinegar, and fresh dill.

Summer Ripe Tomatoes

Creamy Tomato and Cucumber Salad is best made with ripe summer tomatoes. They are so juicy and have such great flavor. I could eat them every single day during the summer.

Creamy Dressing

The dressing is just a little creamy so that it is not too heavy. It’s light and refreshing and enhances the flavor of the tomatoes and cucumbers.

Recipe Tips

I use a sweet Vidalia onion for this recipe but a red onion would work well too.

If you want to add some spice, add 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes.

  1. My mom made this when I was a child (50+ years ago). We all love this salad. Very refreshing on a hot summer day.

  2. Took it to a July 4th party and it was gone in no time. Only thing different is I doubled the dill. I do that in all my recipes.
