One, two, three….yes this recipe only calls for 3 simple ingredients and BAM…a delicious side dish is on the table for dinner. During the school year I need EASY and QUICK recipes. I know other busy parents feel the same way. That is why I think this 3 Ingredient Mozzarella and Cucumber Salad will put smiles on your face for sure.
Our family is starting off the school year with one child starting preschool, one starting middle school and one going into her junior year of high school. 😆 I think we will be going in all directions for sure. My middle daughter is going out for tennis and that is a new sport for our family. Weeknight meals need to be fast and simple.
3 Ingredient Mozzarella and Cucumber Salad
I love fresh mozzarella cheese. It is something I have always liked, but honestly I have a whole new appreciation for it after spending a week in Italy last spring. We ate a LOT of fresh mozzarella cheese! YUM!
It is cucumber season here in Kansas and I love being able to bring some freshness to the table whenever I can. Cucumbers are such a versatile veggie and they pair really nicely with mozzarella cheese.
Mozzarella and Cucumber Salad Goes Great With Pizza
It probably isn’t any surprise that pizza is a favorite meal for our family. What you may not know is that we are just as happy cooking pizza at home then we are ordering out.
My family loves eating Tony’s Pizza and I can honestly say that I have been eating Tony’s Pizza since I started cutting teeth! Tony’s Pizza has been serving authentic pizzeria style pizza since 1960 just up the road from me in Salina, Kansas.
I remember being so excited when my parents had a date night because that meant mom would leave Tony’s Pizza for us to eat for dinner.
I like to grab a few Tony’s Pizzas when I am getting groceries at Walmart. Nothing better on a busy night then being able to grab a Tony’s Pizza out of the freezer for our main course!
Ingredients for Mozzarella and Cucumber Salad
2 cups of sliced cucumbers
1 cup of fresh mozzarella cheese balls
1/2 cup of your choice of vinaigrette dressing
How to Make Mozzarella and Cucumber Salad
First I like to peel my cucumbers. This is optional if you prefer to leave the peel on feel free. 🙂
Next I slice my cucumbers into slices about 1/4 inch thick or so.
Add cucumbers and fresh mozzarella cheese balls into a bowl.
Pour any flavor of vinaigrette dressing over the cucumbers and mozzarella cheese and stir to coat.
I used a 3 cheese vinaigrette dressing and it was WONDERFUL! Feel free to use whatever flavor your family prefers. If you like a LOT of dressing you can also add more than 1/2 cup. If you like less…add less! This recipe is easy to adapt for family preferences.
Serve this up with a slice of Tony’s® Pizzeria Style MEAT-TRIO® Pizza and you are set for an amazing dinner. This is a meal I know will give my daughter the umph she needs to get out on the tennis court and give it her all!
Tony’s Pizza Cares About Youth Sports and Community
Seeing a local company grow into a household name and then continue to give back to local communities warms me up inside.
