Tomato Cucumber Salad With Feta

5 Servings

If you like tart and tangy, savory and salty flavors, then this is a salad you’ll have to try! I made this Tomato Cucumber Salad with Feta a friend of mine gave me some cucumbers from his garden. You can’t go wrong combining cucumbers with tomatoes, but when you add in some feta cheese and Kalamata olives, that really gives this salad a special zing!

The “dressing” in this salad is very simple…just some lemon juice and olive oil. So there are lots of healthy ingredients in this. If you don’t have cherry tomatoes, you can chop up larger tomatoes into chunks and that will work fine!
