Cucumber Feta Salad

Cucumber Feta Salad

We have been keeping our meals light and simple this week. Last night, Josh asked if we could have a cucumber feta salad for dinner. I loved the idea and immediately headed to the kitchen to get started. We are in the middle of a kitchen remodel, but our kitchen is not completely destroyed yet:)

I sliced an English cucumber, red onion, and chopped up fresh dill. I added a splash of white vinegar, sugar, and a pinch of salt. I stirred the ingredients together and we were ready to eat. I love easy salads like this one. Josh made vegetable hummus sandwiches to go with the salad. We had a fresh, summer meal in a matter of minutes.

The cucumbers are crisp, crunchy, and refreshing. The dill, red onion, and creamy feta cheese make this salad pop with flavor and color. This cucumber feta salad is the perfect side dish for any summer meal. Go grab a cucumber from your garden and make it today.

We also have an Atheno’s Feta Giveaway-to enter visit our Giveaway page! Giveaway ends on Sunday, July 18th.

    I have a container of cukes sitting in some rice wine vinegar in the fridge as we speak. Love the simplicity of this salad with the feta and red onions.

    Wow, I did something so similar yesterday for lunch. I used cukes, tomato, balsamic vinegar, feta, sea salt, cracked black pepper. I’m going to have to try this now too.

    Consider this lunch! I have all the ingredients, it’s hot out and this is simple enough for me to make on this steamy afternoon. GREG

    Now I have a way to use the 12 cucumbers I pulled from the garden last night. Thanks!

    You guys have inspired me with all of your salads lately! I’ve been eating them up a storm. Now I MUST have a vegetable hummus sandwich for dinner…bad influences you are 😛

  15. Katie @ goodLife {eats} — July 15, 2010 @ 10:59 am

    This looks so refreshing! I haven’t made anything with dill in a while. Definitely going to give this a try soon. My neighbor is growing cucumbers.

  16. Eliana — July 15, 2010 @ 11:22 am

    Love it when something so simple tastes so great. This is proof that good eats don’t have to be stuffy.

  17. Alison — July 15, 2010 @ 1:31 pm

    okay I’m off to buy feta. My kids love these combinations that you have been posting-all of their favorite ingredients!

  18. Barbara @moderncomfortfood — July 15, 2010 @ 1:38 pm

    Either of the words “cucumber” or “feta” would have definitely caught my attention. But both together? I’m totally smitten with this recipe. What a great combination of flavors for a simple, easy, and refreshing summer salad.

  19. Melanie — July 15, 2010 @ 2:58 pm

    What a refreshingly light salad! I’m always impressed by your healthful creations.

  20. Tamara — July 15, 2010 @ 3:53 pm

    So nice but you gotta appreciate a man who ASKS for a cucumber salad for dinner, my man would not ever eat this if it doesnt have some sort of meat but great side dish

    Feta? That’s genius! I’ve been making something this without feta forever and I never thought about what a perfect fit it would be to include it. Thanks!

    I love feta!

    Lovely salad. The second photo is excellent.

  32. Cucumber, red onion and feta is one of my favorite combinations! I love getting this type of salad at a middle eastern restaurant we order gyros from. Delicious!

  33. NancyC — July 19, 2010 @ 11:15 am

    This looks great! I need to try it!

  34. K — July 19, 2010 @ 2:51 pm

    Eating this right now! So good! I added some of my own touches. Rice wine vinegar, brown sugar, baby cucumbers, and oregano feta. Thanks for sharing this recipe. :)

  35. Cookin' Canuck — July 19, 2010 @ 8:55 pm

    This is such a light, pretty salad. It just goes to show that you don’t need to spend hours to make a healthy, tasty dish.

  36. Melissa — July 19, 2010 @ 10:12 pm

    I love that you’ve posted light, healthy & fast recipes!

    I just wish our cucumber plants hadn’t been eaten by a pack of snails. Boo. To the store I go!
