Buttermilk Cucumber Tomato Salad

Gluten Free Living – 2017

Buttermilk Cucumber Tomato Salad is a delightful salad recipe that’s simple, easy, and refreshing. It’s also a terrific way to use up an abundance or tomatoes or cucumbers especially if you have your own garden. It takes a minimum of ingredients and you can have this recipe ready to go in about 10 minutes.

I picked this recipe up while staying at the Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs this past July. My husband’s job required him to be there for a trustee meeting. Since I have family in Colorado Springs, I always love to go. We stayed a few days in Breckenridge before his meetings began, and then stayed at the Broadmoor after that.

The day before we left, a cooking class was scheduled for all the spouses who wanted to attend. Unfortunately, I had hardly slept the night before so I slept in and missed the class. But not before I heard how everyone raved about this salad. There were copies of the salad recipe on the tables for everyone to pick up and I made sure I got one!

There were two chefs doing the cooking demo and one of them brought this recipe from his mother. (My apologies for not knowing his name). His recipe was called “Mom’s Buttermilk Salad.” But since the recipe isn’t my mom’s, I felt it needed a new name. Other than adding additional tomatoes, the recipe is pretty much in tact from the original version.

I made the recipe back in August for our Friday night care group. I was making a Shepherd’s Pie that night and thought this would be a good side dish. I was right. Everyone really liked this very simple salad. While the original recipe only calls for salt and pepper, if you wanted to spice up the recipe with fresh dill or other herbs, I’m sure that would enhance the flavor even more.

For those of you who have gardens, put this Buttermilk Cucumber Tomato Salad on your menu list for ways to use up all your produce next summer. And for those of you who just love tomatoes and cucumbers (like me), this is a must make now! 🙂

I used these ingredients. I ended up using the grape tomatoes more as a garnish rather than in the main salad.
