Cucumber Tomato Salad

In the beginning of 2013 I completed the Beachbody Ultimate Reset Cleanse. To say it was hard is an understatement. For me anyway.

I've never been one that has had a desired to do a cleanse or want to try and cleanse my body of toxins or whatever else. But I wanted to give it a try and see if I could do it.

If you're someone that eats clean already then this cleanse probably won't be as hard for you as it was for me. However, I am not someone that eats clean all the time… I have my days that I am really good and then days that I am not so good.

I more follow an 80/20 rule and like to enjoy a little bit of everything in moderation. Though, some days I do indulge just like many people.

The cleanse isn't like a juice only cleanse, you actually eat real food for 21 days. But it's specific food designed to “cleanse” your body and help you get back onto a healthier eating track.

Even though I don't think I'll ever do it again, I definitely learned a lot from the cleanse about eating and fueling my body properly. I also picked up a few new recipes that I would have never thought to try before. Which is always a good thing.

One of them being the Cucumber Tomato Salad… so GOOD with a soy vinegar based dressing and delicious, crispy cucumbers, tomatoes, and red onions.

Since completing the cleanse, I have actually made this recipe quite a few times for lunch or just a quick snack to keep on hand for when I want to much on something. The hubby even likes it so that means it has to be good! Haha

So here you go. One of the many, but my favorite recipe from the Ultimate Reset. Enjoy!

  1. I love the combination of tomatoes, cucumbers and onions! My husband, on the other hand, does not like tomatoes, cucumbers or onions! Ha! That just means, I’ll be making this and eating it all by myself.

  2. I think this salad sounds lovely, and like something everyone would enjoy! And since we’re talking “other half” food preferences… mine didn’t used to dress any salad that had lettuce. Those had to be plain, but something like this needed a vinegar/oil topping. :-p

  3. I’ve been trying to eat healthier lately but most recipes I see out there are plain boring. Except yours! I tried this salad yesterday and it was just divine. Can’t wait to try your other recipes.

  4. I can tell spring is almost here because I am totally craving fresh and easy dishes and this one is going on my list. I don’t worry so much about “clean eating” and just focus on eating well, which means indulgences are okay 🙂 I try to balance it out with things like this salad. P.S. Great photos, too!
