I never thought a salad with such simple ingredients and dressing can be so delicious. I love that the salad uses ingredients that are all pretty much always on hand and in your kitchen. Freshly shredded cabbage, tomatoes, cucumbers with a light homemade dressing. So delicious.

Spring salad with cabbage, tomatoes and cucumbers with a light dressing.

This salad recipe is one I learned from the Uzbek kitchen from my mother in law. Yes, it’s pretty universal and I am sure we have something similar in Ukraine but I love their combination. It’s a great choice when you need a quick and good healthy salad but you don’t want to spend hours preparing it. A simple salad with cucumbers, shredded cabbage, tomatoes, red onion, cilantro with a simple olive oil dressing. This is great with some Ukrainian Bacon and Mushroom Chicken or even a Meat and Potato Casserole and of course fresh Uzbek Lepyoshki.. 🙂

(P.S. This was one of my very first posts, I’m just bumping it to the front so don’t judge the photography skills here;)..)
