Cherry Tomato Salad Recipe with Buttermilk Vinaigrette
I am always looking for recipes for the number of tomatoes we end up with. We also do a lot of roasted cherry tomatoes for salads and sauces and I always make slow cooker tomato sauce for the freezer. Another favorite is my Bacon Avocado and Tomato Green Salad.
This buttermilk tomato salad recipe was inspired by a recipe I saw in the Taste of Home magazine (use my affiliate & grab a full year subscription for $6.95). I altered it a bit by using olive oil as well as adding a small amount of chopped celery and topped with balsamic glaze. So good!
Cucumber Tomato Salad Recipe
Cucumbers are also one of my favorite things to grow. We’ll grow the regular variety and the round lemon cucumbers. They are a great addition to this tomato salad recipe and go really well with the buttermilk vinaigrette. Because who doesn’t a good cucumber tomato salad?
Fresh salads like this one make a great lunch or side dish.

I think my favorite is the balsamic glaze drizzle. I love that stuff! I usually pick it up at Trader Joes. It’s great on so many things.

How Long will this Salad Keep?
This cherry tomato salad is best if made and served the same day. I’ve stored it overnight before, but the tomatoes tend to get a bit soggy. Serving it fresh is my favorite way.
