Mediterranean Cucumber Salad

So the picture above was taken on one of my iphone apps, which is why it looks a little different.  Our camera needed a re-charge.
This salad is light and crunchy.  The english cucumbers work best for this salad because they don't have a lot of seeds.  I served this inside a pita filled with falafels, hummus, and sliced avocado.  It's easy and could even add a little fresh oregano if you want some herb flavor.  Enjoy!

Mediterranean Cucumber Salad 

INGREDIENTS: {serves 4}

  • 1 english cucumber, sliced lengthwise into fourths, then cut into 1 inch dice
  • 1/2 cup grape tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese, cubed or crumbled
  • 1/4 cup kalamata olives, sliced
  • 1-2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon
  • 1 Tbsp. seasoned rice vinegar
  • salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
 Sliced cucumber lengthwise in half then slice each half down the middle {I like to cut out any seeds}. Cut 1-inch dice and place in a medium bowl.  Add the tomatoes, olive, and cheese.  Drizzle in the olive oil, lemon juice, rice vinegar, and season to taste with salt and pepper.  Toss gently. Serve alongside any mediterranean dish or stuffed in a pita.

  1. YUM!! Last month I was on a Greek/Med/Armenian kick and made this salad a bunch! It's so refreshing and salty at the same time! :)
