All other ingredients and measurements can be found in the recipe card towards the bottom of this post. 

  • Cucumbers. I use english cucumbers, they have a thinner skin that is easier to digest and enjoy.
  • Tomatoes. Roma tomatoes or hot house/vine ripe tomatoes will work best.
  • Red Onion. This adds a little spice and aromatics to the salad.
  • Seasonings. Salt, pepper, garlic powder, dried Italian seasoning, red pepper flakes.
  • Soy Sauce. This is for the dressing, you can use Tamari sauce if desired.
  • Olive Oil & Red Wine Vinegar. This is the base of the light dressing.
  • Fresh Herbs. Fresh basil is a MUST 🙂 but I also like to use fresh parsley and/or cilantro.
