Cucumber Feta Salad

Cucumber Feta Salad
My new favorite ingredient is feta cheese. There are so many cheeses in the market, but some you like and some you don't. Goat cheese is not my kind of cheese. Well, you all have read about cream cheese and ricotta cheese recipes. Now is the time for a refreshing summer salad with olives and feta cheese.

Ingredients:
English Cucumber - 1 big
Red Onion (thinly sliced) - about 1/2 cup
Feta Cheese - 1/2 cup
Black Olives - 1/4 cup
Lime or Lemon Juice - 4 tbsp
Olive Oil - 2 1/2 tbsp
Dry Basil - 1/2 tsp
Salt

How to make Feta Cucumber Salad:
  • Thinly slice the cucumber. Peel the skin if you like. Alternately, you chop the cucumber into bite size pieces as well.

  • Thinly slice red onion. I used half of a medium size onion. For salads, red onions taste best. You can use any other onions too.
  • Slice the black olives too. You can add tomatoes, avocados, colorful bell peppers too for some more color.
  • Add all the chopped veggies and feta cheese to a big bowl.
Feta Salad
  • In a small bowl, prepare the dressing/vinaigrette. Add olive oil, lime juice, dry basil and salt. Whisk it well. 
  • Pour this dressing in the big bowl over the veggies. Toss well and your Cucumber Salad is ready. Refrigerate the salad for about 30 minutes, for the flavors to blend.
Garnish Feta Cucumber Salad with some more cheese if you like. Enjoy!
