Recipe Notes
  1. You can substitute the english cucumber for a regular one. Just be sure to peel it and if the seeds are large remove them. 
  2. You can substitute the grape or cherry tomatoes with 1 pound of Roma tomatoes, chopped. 
  3. Optional add-ins to customize your salad:
    • Add 1/2 of a bell pepper, chopped. The salad in these pictures has a red bell pepper added.
