4 Ingredient Summer Salad – You Want This!

Okay folks,  this salad is so delicious all on its own!   But you have to use the special ingredient of baby gourmet cucumbers.  If you use regular cucumbers (and I have) it just doesn’t taste the same.  These special cucumbers give freshness and crunch to this great cold salad.  I use this as a base salad and make many other dishes from it.  See below and enjoy!


4 Ingredient Summer Salad


  • 2 cups grape or small cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
  • 1 regular can medium pitted black olives, sliced in half
  • 4 baby gourmet cucumbers, diced
  • 1 can rinsed or 1.5 cups fresh cooked and cooled garbanzo beans
  • Optional: Add parsley, olive oil, vinegar, and a squeeze of lime or 2 drops Lime Vitality Essential Oil


  • Combine ingredients and enjoy!
  • I add chopped parsley, olive oil, vinegar, and a squeeze of lime to make this irresistible.
  • Other recipes you can make with this base salad.
  • Add cooked quinoa or bulgar, parsley, lime juice, and olive oil for a chunky tabouli.
    Cold Pasta Salad
  • 2. To three cups of cooked bowtie pasta, add two cups of this base, a couple of dollops of a fresh Caesar dressing, a 1/4 cup chopped green onion, and a handful of chopped spinach or kale. Combine and refrigerate.
