Easy Greek Salad

Summer is in the air and summer produce is really starting to become available!  When I saw fresh cucumbers at the farm, I knew I just had to make my Greek salad.  It is such a great side dish on a hot day!  It works so well with a number of main dishes ranging from pastas to burgers to BBQ.  

This salad is just bursting with colors and textures!  I actually just starting growing my own cucumbers, so I can't wait until they mature and I can make this salad with cucumbers from my own garden.  And of course, it is even better with fresh, local tomatoes.  

This salad is kid-friendly with a mild flavor and small, bite-sized pieces.  My daughter loves to help put all the veggies in the bowl after I cut them up.  It is another recipe that can be made early in the day in order to make evening dinner prep that much easier.  And who doesn't love that?  

2 cucumbers, seeded and chopped
1/2 a red onion, chopped
10-15 cherry tomatoes, quartered
10 Kalamata olives, halved
1/3 C crumbled feta
a dash of lemon juice


  1. Assemble the chopped ingredients into a large bowl.  Stir to combine.
  2. Sprinkle the feta on top. 
  3. Add the dressing and lemon juice.  Toss to coat evenly.
  4. Let chill for an hour before serving.
