Smooth feta, hearty olives, sweet fresh tomatoes and crispy cucumbers tossed with a lovely Greek dressing! This quick and easy Greek Cucumber Salad comes together fast and is perfect for those hot summer days.
I don’t know about you guys, but I love olives. Black, green, purple, and everything in between. I like the meaty texture, and the bitter brininess, and the heft.
At my local grocery store there is an olive bar. They have all these different types and sizes of olives and feta, and they come in different brines, oil marinades etc. I drool over it every time I walk by, but it is pricy. Like a tiny little container will run you $8! Ouch. Today when I was shopping I couldn’t help but stop and look. And then inspiration hit. Greek Cucumber Salad!
I love the flavors of Greek salads. They are always a hit in the summer months for me. When I was looking at the olive bar I thought it would be so nice to do a fresh salad without pasta or anything else, just olives, feta, tomato, and cucumbers.And this is what I came up with Greek Cucumber Salad!
