This delicious high-fiber salad can be a delightful change of pace from lettuce-based salads. Allowing it to sit for at least 30 minutes before enjoying helps the flavors meld, and it’s even better the second day.

1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes, quartered
1 large cucumber, chopped (seeded and peeled, if desired)
2/3 cup red onion, chopped
2/3 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1/4 cup white or red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper

RELATED: 5-Minute Burrito
