This Tomato Cucumber Salad is simply a fresh, easy summer salad, Russian style. Growing up, this was a staple on our summer table, with mum picking the tomatoes and cucumbers fresh from her garden. Now it’s a staple on our summer table.

So easy, we even make it when we go on a picnic or at a BBQ. One thing I love about living in Western Australia is that there are public gas barbecues available to use in parks and beaches, for free. So easy to enjoy an outdoor lifestyle, it makes eating fresh all the more enjoyable. It’s so easy to take the uncut tomatoes and cucumbers and make this salad on the picnic table.

Nothing beats the taste of vine ripened, organic home grown tomatoes. This is a very rustic salad, with simple ingredients, readily available in every home. As the flavour of the tomatoes and onions meld together with the whipping cream, creating a delicious salty flavoured whipping cream which I love to mop up with a crusty piece of bread. Fresh. Rustic. Simple. Bon Appetit! Приятного аппетита!

  1. My mum (who is Polish) also makes salads with cream as a dressing. It seems a bit awkward, but is, in fact, tasty, especially if you add a pinch of salt AND a pinch sugar. I am curious what kind of cucumbers you Mum grew in her garden? Were they long and slick like we buy in stores now or ‘proper’ short ‘warty’ ones?

    • Haha, I love your response. Slavic people all have very similar foods, probably due to our shared histories. You’re right, it is so delicious, and I’ll have to try the sugar trick! And the home grown cucumbers must only be the short and warty ones, not the long pretty tasteless ones they sell in stores! 🙂
