Cucumber, Feta, and Tomato Salad

September 12, 2023

Cucumber, feta, and tomato salad is perfect as a BBQ or Greek night side dish. Made with cucumber, tomato, onion, feta, and a light vinaigrette.

Hold on! It’s not quite pumpkin and apple season yet.

The gardens are still spitting out the final fruits of the season.

So, a last summery recipe for you all today.

This cucumber, feta, and tomato salad has been on our table for years.

I honestly believed I had posted it to the blog a while ago.

My apologies.

Doing this for ten years makes things start top blend together sometimes.

Here is what you will need for this recipe:

  • cucumber
  • tomato
  • yellow onion
  • feta cheese
  • salt & pepper
  • lemon juice
  • olive oil
  • red wine vinegar
  • dijon mustard
  • fresh dill (optional)

This salad is so light and easy to make.

You are going to cut the tomato, cucumber, and feta into bite-sized chunks.

Cut the onion into the thinnest slivers your knife can manage or use a mandolin.

The vinaigrette is made with extra-virgin olive oil, dijon mustard, red wine vinegar, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. 

Whisk that all together and adjust the salt and pepper to your taste.

I like to garnish the salad with fresh dill or parsley.

It adds another level of fresh flavor.

Clearly, if you don’t have dill or parsley, the red wine vinegar, lemon juice, and dijon pack enough of a punch.

It makes a great side dish for Greek chicken or steak.

I love to pile this salad, tzatziki sauce, olives, and sliced Greek chicken on to a soft pita. It’s the perfect end of summer meal.

Cucumber, feta, and tomato salad is also a fresh and easy dish to bring to a party.

Enjoy the last remnants of summer while they are at theair peak.

Make this salad and let me know what you serve alongside.
