TOMATO – Fresh vine ripe tomatoes are the go-to for this cucumber salad, however, you can use cherry tomatoes if you’d like. Some people like a smaller chop when it comes to the tomatoes so feel free to make your cuts smaller as well.
CUCUMBER – We left the cucumber unpeeled but you can peel it first before slicing if you’re not a fan of the skin.
FETA – You can skip the feta if you desire and the salad would still be delicious. You can use either pre-crumbled feta or a block of feta that you crumble yourself.

Though this salad is best served fresh, you can store it in an air tight container kept in the refrigerator for around 3 days. The longer your salad sits, the less crisp it becomes. If you want to make it ahead of time, I’d recommend holding off on the dressing until you’re ready to serve.
