Fresh Cucumber Tomato Salad

This is a delicious recipe for a fresh side dish! Lots of people who don't have candida make this using white vinegar; candida doesn't allow that so sprinkle on the salt and spices! (Let me tell you, spices and herbs are your best friends when you have candida!).

Tomatoes are included in this recipe; these are semi limited.
Fresh herbs are always better than dried for candida; if you use dried, try to make sure it is under 6 months old (less chance of mold)

Approx. 12 cherry tomatoes
1 large cucumber
1 tsp. fresh or dried oregano
sea salt to taste

Rinse tomatoes and cut into quarters. Peel cucumber; cut in half crosswise and cut each of those halves in half longwise. Remove seeds using an apple corer, spoon, or cut out with a knife. Slice cucumber crosswise and cut slices into bite sized pieces. Toss with tomatoes, oregano and salt. Refrigerate at least half an hour before serving.

I like the look of your tomato salad. Just wanted to mention that fresh spices and herbs are often a safer bet with candida as sometimes the dried herbs and spices have mold in them. Nice blog!

Thanks for that note! I edited the recipe to include that.
