Cracker Barrel Cucumbers Tomatoes and Onions

It has been awhile since the Cracker Barrel has made a new addition to their side dishes, Cracker Barrel Cucumbers Tomatoes and Onions is one of their new side dishes. This is a great light side dish that is so easy to make. This side salad is packed full of fresh cucumbers, grape tomatoes and white onions.

Cracker Barrel Cucumbers Tomatoes and Onions

One thing that I love about the Cracker Barrel is its homey style menu. Every time I go there I feel like I am stepping into my Grandmother’s house. She would always make cucumbers and onions every summer with the cucumbers from their garden. This recipe from the cracker barrel adds those lovely sweet grape tomatoes in this well known salad.
This salad is perfect for those of us who like to cook ahead. This salad will stay nice and fresh in your refrigerator for about a week. In fact, the flavor only improves as the flavors mingle. So be sure to put this one together ahead of time. You may want to season this with a little fresh cracked black pepper. While they don’t add cracked pepper at the Cracker Barrel I think this adds a very nice touch to this recipe.

    The original has celery seed in the marinade… Certain of it.

      I didn’t notice that when I tried the dish. They may have modified the recipe since I have tried it. I will have to go back and check out the dish again.

    Good, but too sweet for my taste, so I added salt and pepper to improve. Next time, only 1/4 c sugar. Right proportion of tomatoes to cukes to onions.
