Mediterranean Cucumber Salad Greek Tomato Feta Kalamata Olives

Mediterranean Cucumber Salad

This Mediterranean Cucumber Salad is Greek inspired…filled with cucumber, tomato, red onion, feta cheese, kalamata olives and herbs. It’s so darned flavourful; you’ll crave it! It keeps really well, too. So leftovers are great for next day lunches. With some naan, or some crusty bread, it’s a light fabulous meal for Meatless Monday.  

There isn’t one single thing in this salad that I don’t adore. I love cucumbers; I transform into a human tomato during tomato season; I could (and do) drink red wine vinegar; I have an abiding affection for feta cheese (especially since I started making my own); kalamata olives are rapturous. I’m tellin’ ya’, if a person could marry a salad, this one just might be my amour.

One thing, though. I rarely put oil on my salads. If you like oil, I’d add a nice olive oil to this, but it really doesn’t need it. It’s so fresh and light and packed with flavour. Make it!

About P ~ The Saucy Southerner

I started cooking when I was ten years old. For me, the process of cooking, from inception of a dish, to the execution, to the washing of the pots is sheer delight.

I am now retired from a business I still own, in partnership with my husband. I used to work six days a week and still cook every night. Now, I’m gardening, still cooking, always having fun and hoping to share my joy with you. Thank you for reading…and commenting! P~

    You know I love you for that!

    Like most people just starting out following recipes, I used to put oil in all my grain and vegetable and bean salads. Now, none. 90% of the time, it just doesn’t need it!

      Right? They just don’t need the fat. And I knew you would have made that transition too.

      One exception is when I make Caesar dressing…but I use very little even then. P~
