I love having this Tomato Cucumber Feta Salad around for a quick, healthy lunch or snack. It holds up well in the refrigerator, always ready for a quick bite or two when I’m looking for a little nibble.
It’s a quick and easy salad to throw together with a Greek inspired flavor profile. I love cucumbers in salads with different flavor profiles, like a Thai Cucumber Salad or a delicious Panzanella Salad. For this salad just combine some little grape tomatoes with cucumber, feta, kalamata olives and a little diced red onion…tossed lightly in your favorite (greek) vinaigrette.
Tomato Cucumber Feta Salad is so tasty and satisfying by itself, but would even be great as a side dish to some grilled chicken or fish, or keep it plant-based and substitute your favorite vegan feta for regular feta. As a bonus this recipe doesn’t have to be exact…just throw in as much or as little of each ingredient as you like. Just be careful not to oversaturate it with too much dressing.Print
Tomato, Cucumber & Feta Salad
- 1 pint small grape tomatoes, sliced in half
- 1/2 english cucumber, diced
- 15 Kalamata olives, sliced in half
- 1 C. feta cheese, diced* (use vegan, if desired)
- 1/4 C. diced red onion
- 2 Tbls. chopped fresh oregano
- 2 Tbls. chopped fresh parsley
- Just a light drizzle of your favorite vinaigrette (enough to very lightly dress the salad)
- salt & pepper to taste
Add ingredients to a bowl and toss with your favorite vinaigrette. I made a simple vinaigrette with lemon juice, olive oil and greek seasoning, but any bottled greek salad dressing or simple vinaigrette would work just fine.
*I used Violife vegan feta today… I find it to be creamy but doesn’t have the same “bite” as regular feta so I like to first toss the cubes in a bowl drizzled with a little olive oil, squeeze of lemon juice, sprinkle of Italian seasoning and some red pepper flakes, then I add it to the other salad ingredients.
