This easy and delicious Middle Eastern Cucumber Tomato Salad is one of my staple low calorie side dish recipes. It pairs well with just about everything, and is such a light, crisp and refreshing salad. I often tire of salads with lettuce, so this Cucumber Tomato version is one of my favorite Weight Watchers Salad Recipes. Sometimes, I’ll add a few variations to it, like adding fresh mint, or using lime juice instead of lemon. It’s also great added to some quinoa or couscous. And for just 3 Points + per serving, I think it makes a great addition to many meals, that is so simple, yet impressive. Enjoy!
