Cucumber Tomato Relish

I’ve been getting so many tomatoes and fresh herbs from my CSA bag! I wanted to make a healthy fish dinner and use some of the fresh vegetables I’m getting. This cucumber tomato relish with its sweet vinegar flavor was absolutely the perfect companion with my delicate, white flaky fish. Or use this as a bruschetta topping. This recipe is both tasty and flexible!


¼ cup olive oil

2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

2 tablespoons sugar

½ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper

¼ cup fresh parsley, chopped

1 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped

¼ teaspoon Dijon mustard

1 cucumber, peeled (optional) and diced

1 pound tomatoes, diced

1 bell pepper, diced

½ sweet onion, chopped


Whisk together dressing ingredients (olive oil through mustard) until sugar is dissolved and dressing starts to thicken. In a serving bowl, pour over cucumber, tomatoes, bell pepper, and onion and mix well. Refrigerate until ready to use.
