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.
