Chicken, Tomato and Cucumber Salad is a winner, winner chicken dinner that the whole family will like. It’s lightly dressed, refreshing, easy, fast, healthy and veggie-centric. That hits all the marks for a perfect all-year recipe!
Grab some chicken, a tomato or 4 from your late-summer garden, some cucumber, and let’s make a light, bright dinner. You’ll have it on repeat, and once you make it, you won’t need the recipe anymore. That’s how easy and intuitive it is.
How to make Chicken, Cucumber and Tomato Dinner Salad
First, head to the meat department and make a beeline for chicken. You can use breasts, breast fillets, boneless skinless thighs…whatever boneless part you like best.
Toss all the ingredients in your shopping basket. Use tomatoes from your garden, of course, if you have any. If not, I bought some heirlooms here because my vines were no longer producing.
When you get ready to make dinner, assemble all the ingredients (always a good idea, no matter what you are making!).
Heat the skillet and toss that chicken right on in.
It only needs a single turn-over in the pan, for a total cooking time of 8-10 minutes.
Get a little fancy if you like, by making ribbons out of the cukes, or if cucumber chunks are more your style, go ahead and freestyle. I freestyled on the olives…it called for green, but I had Kalamata olives I wanted to use up, so in they went. I’ve said this a zillion times, and I’ll say it again: use what you have and need to use up!
Voila! So easy, so non-stressful, so welcomed by everyone at the table.
