I love fresh easy salads like this. The dressing will make it feel that you are eating much more than plain veggies and will help you stay on your diet. Wow, what an easy recipe! My daughter and I love vegetables and this has always been a favorite of mine. This is a very easy recipe to make. The 30 minute prep time includes 20 minutes to marinate. I had been eating improperly and had gained a whole lot.
It is generally accompanied by fried eggs on top, meat and sometimes with a side of fried ripe plantain Platano Maduro. Less money, fat, calories, and actually healthy. A tasty shake for those who don't want to use protein powder. Also great as part of a SBD Phase 1 meal. This delicious chocolate shake will satisfy your sweet tooth and your hunger Easy to make in Crock Pot. The recipe makes one serving, so you have your portion-control built right in and aren't tempted to have more than you should that's an important factor to me.
Of course if you have a family you want to feed breakfast to, you can make as many servings at once as you prefer. This is a very easy recipe to make. You feel like you are cheating. These cookies are the closest to the high fat version I could find.
This sounds so yummy! Basically, it takes the pasta out of the pasta salad. I would leave out the onions for me, but I will certainly be making this! Actually, I never thought of marinating the veggies first — not a bad idea. I might even combine it with a little 3-bean salad.
This looks so good! My family and I really need to start eating better. Cucumber and tomato salad is one of my favorite salads! I like to use green onion with mine, add a bit of feta and olive oil and vinegar. I am SO trying t get my husband to stop snacking, but the first step is to try to get him to at least eat snacks that are healthy no cheese,please! I should make a mess of this and put it in the fridge for him when he has the munchies. I like having food already prepared.
I love Zesty italian dressing, perfect for this simple veggie recipe. Love the idea of making ahead of time, ready to go instead of grabbing something not so good for your body. That sounds really good. I might take out the onions though and add something else — like celery or peas — but I might have to try this, thanks!
This is a really healthy and delicious way to get my veges. I like Italian dressing and the tomatoes are so good with it on it. This is a very good salad to eat in the summer!
Thanks for reminding me of this recipe! I am recently gluten-free so to make sure there is something I can eat at a family gathering, I need to bring it! I am really anxious to try this, it is so simple, yet it sounds delicious. What is even better, I have tomatoes and cucumbers in my garden that are almost ready!
If only this recipe did not have cucumbers in it. Cucumbers, for some odd reason, do not suit my stomach. I will burp for the rest of the day and it does not taste good. This is another good idea for using cucumber. I have cuke slices pickling with sugar and vinegar in my fridge at the moment. I need a good vegetable recipe to get my healthy vegetables in my diet.
I like tomatoes, cucumbers, and Vidalia onion. This reminds me of what my grandma would make in the summer except she would just use vinegar and sugar and let it set overnight in the refrigerator over night. The next day it would be so good. I never thought of doing it with italian dressing. What a fantastic summer refresher. I love cucumbers and tomatoes. This is going on my shopping list for the rest of the summer!
OMG this recipe sounds so good! I love that I can make it ahead and then just grab some when I want a snack. Right now with all the garden vegetables coming in, this is a perfect recipe to help use them. The dressing will make it feel that you are eating much more than plain veggies and will help you stay on your diet. This would be delicious with fresh veggies from my garden! Maybe sprinkle something from the herb garden on top as well…. My daughter has to be on a special diet.
She will love this recipe. I will make this recipe with the fresh tomatoes and cucumbers that are going to be coming from my garden. All I have to do is add onions and what a great side salad. I usually do a vinegar and water mixture with my cucumbers and onions and my husband and I love it.
I had never even thought about italian dressing as a marinade , this is awesome. Italian dressing is the only dressing my husband will use on a salad…duh at me haha Thank you, thank you for this simple but oh so delicious recipe. I always have these ingredients in my cupboards. I have a garden full of tomatoes and cucumbers so this will be a great! Its simple, but sounds delicious. I am finding all kinds of versions the more I hop from blog to blog.
What a great recipe and I have a garden full of both! Great recipe with all the fresh veggies I got from the garden right now. My neighbor just gave me some sweet onions from their garden, too. I love fresh vegetables and eat mostly ones grown organically. Perfect for a picnic! My mom makes this with home-grown fresh tomatoes and cucumbers from her garden every year! It is so good! She gets a lot of tomatoes and cukes! I just may make this with supper. I have cucumbers out and grape tomatoes in the garden and I always have onions and italian dressing on hand.
It also sounds good with some light mayo. I love fresh vegetables, and this recipe seems like something that I would really enjoy! I am definitely going to try this! This look yummy — I make something similar by halving grape tomatoes, chopping cukes and thinly sliced red onion. I sprinkle it with red wine vinegar and sprinkle with a small amount of sea salt.
The vinegar combines with the juice of the tomatoes, cukes, and onion and it is so yummy and low cal. You can add a touch of Extra virgin olive oil if you think you need the fat.
I make a huge container at the beginning of the week and eat a small bowl whenever I have an overwhelming need to snack between meals. Great summery fresh recipe. Would be delicious with homegrown produce. My daughter often makes a cucumber and onion salad for me with vinegar and Italian. Will have to try it. I love fresh easy salads like this. They are the perfect accompaniment for picnics or just for dinner! Thank you for this. They do so much for the body. I am diabetic and this recipe looks so diabetic friendly and delicious.
I love this cool and refreshing salad. It also is an inexpensive recipe to make for a large crowd. All of these recipes look so good. This stuff is awesome! I had it probably -5 years ago for the first time. It tastes better than it looks! This recipe sounds delicious. I could make it in the morning and take it to work for lunch.
I know this is good. I make a similar salad but I add pasta and parmesan cheese. I guess with the Nutri-System plan you have to eliminate carbs and find interesting ways to get you veggies.
If you let the veggies set over night in the dressing I am sure you could get a big kick from the flavor!! I would make a large bowl of this and divey it out during the week. The longer the veggies marinate the more flavor! I guess Im to impatient to marinade the veggies first. We usually grow all these veggies in our garden so this will be easy for me to make as a side dish.
I like to make this recipe too but I always add some orange or yellow pepper to it too. I also add a tsp of honey or agave sryup to my dressing cause I like that sweet and sour taste. Give it a try you might like it that way too! I do it often with cucumbers and onions, never thought to add tomatoes.
Our garden has been MORE than abundant with them this year, this will be perfect to make with the extras. I make something similar to this, but I make it difficult for myself. I cannot wait to try this. I love cucumbers, tomatoes, and onions in a salad, but have never made with Italian dressing.
Like the idea that the veggies get to marinate in the dressing. Wow, this recipe is easy enough.. Thank you for the recipe. I really need to eat healthier. This looks really good and easy to make. I like how it is healthy and my daughter may eat it since it has dressing. I always forget how easy it is to come up with simple ways to serve veggies. I love this idea. I have never seen the small size tomatoes in this recipe.
But I have several plants of them and my kids love this salad so I think I will try it with the smaller tomatoes. Thank you for posting this recipe! Thank you for reminding me how simple and easy it can be to add the right food to my diet.
The picture you have makes it look very tasty. Best is, any salad dressing will do. Wow, what an easy recipe! I already have all these ingredients at home. Just made this today. This is definitely my go to salad. Great idea to marinate it. I love that this recipe is so simple. That is what I need more in my life. It also looks delicious so win-win! My husband does something similar.
I slices cucumber, tomato, black olive and shops up onion. Lay out all the pieces on a plate. Then pour a little Italian dressing over the vegetables. This would make a great healthy snack! I am 34 weeks pregnant, and I have craved fresh vegetables all throughout my pregnancy. This looks really good! I have a picky family, so I have to sub the Italian dressing for Sundried tomato and basil dressing. You should try it! This is a simple healthy recipe that my family has used for years.
It goes great with barbecues as well. My daughter and I love vegetables and this has always been a favorite of mine. This looks so refreshing and delish! I am so going to make this and I am not even a big fan of onions but why not!? It is always easy to forget to eat healthy. This recipe has all the delicious veggies! Thank you for sharing! This looks really delicious! Coming from me someone who hates veggies: The dressing probably gives the veggies so much flavor. I need to make more time for myself, if only to make sure I eat better than I do now.
This reminds me of my Great Grandfather, He would make us cumbers, onions and let it set in a little vinegar. So I do that and add tomatoes to it. It is so good, and sometimes I will change it up and use the Olive Gardening salad dressing, So good, My SO thought I was crazy but he is now hooked too. I love cucumbers and onions together. Even better to make this in the morning and let all the flavors sit and melt together in the fridge.
Would you happen to know how many carbs and sugars are in it?? Great recipe that I pinned into my recipes to make. As it sounds like a super refreshing snacks! We tried this recipe a few weeks ago. It was good, but it was even better when we added feta cheese. I make a salad like this, but I include chopped parsley and l use lemon juice instead of Italian dressing. We have been eating so many different salads lately and it has been alot of fun. This is a recipe I am going to have to try!
I am always looking for ways to prepare vegetables so that my kids will eat it and I love trying new recipes for myself as well. The veggie mix would also be very healthy, and I need to eat more veggies. If you have a garden and the repeats get old I add something a little different like celery or other garden veggies.
Let it chill and voila — Gazpacho! This really looks yummy! My cousin lost lbs on Nutrisystem. They have some pretty good meals. I love fresh and crisp recipes. I like to make my own dressings, the only exception of one I buy is low-fat Italian, and this one by Kraft is a great one! I love having a small salad with meals.
I especially like having salad that has marinated in its dressing, along with a nice piece of Italian bread, so satisfying and yet not too many calories! This recipe is simple, but so good that my kids even like it. Serve with greek chicken for a nice meal that is healthy and yummy! This sounds really simple and easy. This sounds and looks delicious! Do you think the veggies would get mushy if I was to make a batch large enough to last a couple days?
I like this recipe and the marinade should make the onions and cucumbers easier for me to digest them. I might add some other vegetables to them such as carrots and beans. Definitely two of my favorites.
I love tomatoes and cucumbers especially in the summer. This is a very healthy combination and marinating the vegetables enough in advance will impart a delicious flavor to them.
I love the combination of tomatoes,cucumbers and onions. I love the Zesty Italian dressing so will try the recipe. I am glad I found this recipe because our garden has an abundance of tomatoes!!

Thank you so much for sharing.
This recipe is so good. I love these veggies. This is something I really enjoy. Vegetables with Italian dressing is a good side dish or meal. We always used to have tomato, onion and green pepper slices.
This is such a great recipe for my eating healthier diet. It tastes oh so good and it fills me up for a meal. I like zesty Italian dressing for this too. I also like to marinade chicken breasts in it before grilling. It gived it a good flavor. I'm staying under 20g of net carbs a day and I've actually been doing really well. My problem is I finally hit a point in my way of eating where I want something sweet as I've cut all sugar out of my diet.
