  • 1 Mixing bowl

  • 1 Paring knife


  • 1 1/2 cups grape or cherry tomatoes Halved.
  • 1 medium cucumber peeled and cut into Quarters.
  • 250 g fresh mozzarella cut into chunks (or use ciligene)
  • 10-12 fresh basil leaves torn into small Pieces.
  • 2 Tablespoons good quality olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 garlic clove minced.
  • Pinch of salt pepper and sugar, to taste


  • Clean the cucumbers and trim the ends. Next, slice lengthwise, then into quarters, and finally into tiny cubes. See my Pinterest tutorial on cutting an onion before chopping it into tiny bits. After washing and halving the tomatoes, remove the watery cores and chop into dice.
  • To prevent the garlic and shallot from browning, cook the garlic, shallot, and olive oil in a skillet over medium heat for one minute, stirring often. Spoonula-style, transfer all of the aromatic olive oil and gently toasted bits to a mason jar or basin.
  • Garlic, olive oil, red wine vinegar, salt, and pepper should all be combined in a small bowl.

How Does a Cucumber and Tomato Salad Taste Different When Made with Different Types of Vinegar?

Using different types of vinegar can significantly change the taste of a cucumber and tomato salad. For example, using white vinegar will give the salad a sharp and tangy flavor, while apple cider vinegar will add a slightly fruity and more mellow taste. Balsamic vinegar, on the other hand, will add a rich, sweet, and slightly acidic flavor, enhancing the overall depth of the salad.

Red wine vinegar will impart a bold and robust flavor, while rice vinegar will add a mild and slightly sweet taste. Each type of vinegar brings its unique flavor profile to the salad, allowing you to customize the taste based on your preferences.
