If you want something quick, easy, and light, then you’ll love this fresh salad. It is the simplest salad to make on a busy day. Great for barbeque, potlucks, picnics, or as a side to just about anything. It is the perfect summer salad that you can enjoy all year round. All you need are fresh cucumbers, tomatoes, onions, along with a few condiments you already have in your kitchen. This salad has the perfect combination of sweet and salty. Store this in glass containers and chill for later use.

Summer of  2019, I traveled to Coron. It is located in the province of Palawan, Philippines. It has the best ocean, most amazing view, breathtaking islands I’ve seen. The people are great and very accommodating. We rented a cabin, a floating cottage that’s almost in the middle of the beautiful islands in Coron. We stayed for a week and we had the best time. One thing I’ll never forget was the foods they cooked for us. I love fresh seafood and their pickled salad. It’s similar to this Marinated Cucumbers, Onions, and Tomatoes except it had thin slices of bitter gourd. I was inspired by it that when I came home, I made my version except without the bitter gourd.

Whenever I go places, there is always something that stays in me. Like this fresh and light salad that reminds me of that stunning place in Palawan.
