Super Simple SIBO Friendly Cucumber Tomato Salad

The key to this dish tasting fantastic is using authentic Greek flavors: fresh lemon juice, Greek olive oil, and a healthy sprinkling of Greek oregano.

Yes, you can use regular oregano and olive oil, and it’ll still be tasty, but nothing beats real Greek ingredients for that deep sun-kissed flavor.

1 large English (burpless) cucumber, partly peeled* and diced
1 cup of cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
Juice from 1/2 fresh lemon
1/4 cup Greek olive oil (the heartier the better)
1 TBL Greek oregano
1/2 tsp kosher salt

Combine all ingredients in a bowl, mix well, and allow flavors to meld for 15-30 minutes. Before serving, taste and adjust salt (you might want more).

*I typically remove long peels alternated with a strip of peel left on.

    1. I use dried Greek oregano that was given to me by a friend who traveled there recently… it definitely lends that elusive “greek-ness” to the taste. But you could certainly substitute fresh!
