Print Recipe


  • 3 cucumbers, cut into chunks
  • 6 plum tomatoes, cut into chunks
  • ½ red onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • Pinch granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoon sesame seeds
  • Fresh parsley leaves optional


  • In a large bowl, combine cucumbers, tomatoes, and red onions. Season with salt and pepper.
  • In glass canning-type jar, add olive oil, vinegar, tarragon, and sugar. Cover tightly and shake to blend ingredients. Pour over cucumber mixture and toss gently to combine. Cover salad and refrigerate up to an hour.
  • Garnish with sesame seeds, and parsley, if using.


Choose cucumbers that are thinner as there will be fewer seeds and less likelihood of a woody interior.
You can use seedless or English cucumbers for this recipe.
