Cucumber and Feta Salad
Why I Love This Recipe
Such a simple salad with big flavour. The saltiness of the feta cheese works so well against the freshness of the onion and cucumber.
Ingredients You'll Need
6 Mini English Cucumbers, sliced
½ Red Onion, sliced and each slice halved
½ C Feta Cheese, crumbled
2 Tbsp. fresh Parsley, chopped
¼ C EVOO
1 ½ Tbsp. Red Wine Vinegar
¼ Tsp. Dried Oregano
Pinch Red Pepper Flakes
1 clove Garlic, grated
Sea Salt / Black Pepper
In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the dressing ingredients. Season with a pinch of sea salt and black pepper. Set aside.
In a medium sized mixing bowl, add the cucumbers and onions. Drizzle about half the dressing over the vegetables and toss to combine everything.
Crumble the feta over the salad and sprinkle the parley in. Gently toss and drizzle a little more dressing if desired. (Save remainder of dressing in refrigerator)
Taste and adjust salt if desired but keep in mind the feta provides a pretty salty punch!
Serve right away or refrigerate until ready for service.
