Corn, Cucumber, Tomato Salad is fresh, cool, and super easy. It's a simple summer salad and goes great alongside any grilled meal and is the perfect addition to any potluck.

Since the corn in this salad is raw, be sure to use only fresh, sweet, tender corn you've shucked yourself (or, I suppose, very nicely asked someone to shuck for you).

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes


  • 2 or 3 ears corn
  • 2 small cucumbers
  • 3 tomatoes
  • 1 small red onion
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. white wine vinegar or lemon juice
  • 1 small clove garlic, minced (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • Basil, mint, cilantro, or parsley (optional)


  1. Shuck corn and cut off kernels and put in a large bowl. Peel, seed, and dice cucumbers, and add to bowl. Core and dice tomatoes, add to bowl. Dice onion and add to bowl.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar or lemon juice, garlic if you like, and salt. Pour over salad and toss to combine thoroughly.
  3. Mince herbs and use to garnish salad, if you like.

Makes 4 to 6 servings Corn, Cucumber, Tomato Salad.

a perfect summer salad, Member wleighwells

This recipe was so easy and delicious. A perfect way to hold on to summer for a little longer. The dressing and herb suggestions alone are going to change the way I make all types of salads from now on. YUM!
