Cucumber Tomato Salad Cucumber Tomato Salad Allergy Superheroes
The other night I pulled out my phone while making dinner, looking for inspiration to turn our abundant cucumber and tomato crops into an attractive vegetable dish. After seeing a few ideas, I began playing around. Then hubby walked into the kitchen. Hubby: *gasp!* Is that a Greek salad? Me: It’s a cucumber, tomato, and feta salad. Is that Greek? Hubby: I think so!! So hubby decided to add olives to his salad as well. I dunno, it’s all Greek to me! Regardless of what you call it, this dish turned out to be both bright and refreshing! An exciting change from regular garden salads.

  • Ingredients: 1 cucumber
    ~1/2 cup chopped fresh tomatoes
    3 green onions
    3 Tbsp feta chees crumbles
    optionally add black or greek olives, if you like

    For the Dressing
    3 Tbsp olive oil
    1 Tbsp red wine vinegar
    1/2 tsp oregano
    1/4 tsp salt
    a few grinds of black pepper

  • Instructions: Cut cucumber into quarters lengthwise, then slice thinly.
    Chop tomatoes and green onions.
    Mix veggies together in a bowl, along with feta.
    Whisk dressing ingredients in a small bowl. Drizzle over salad.
    Top with black or Greek olives, if you like. Enjoy!
