We got some flavorful and crisp cucumbers in our CSA box a few weeks ago and I threw together this simple and tasty salad with some other ingredients I had on hand. It makes for an easy summer salad on a hot day and looks pretty too.
1 cucumber – seeded and cut into bite sized pieces
1/2 pint grape/cherry tomatoes – cut in half
Feta cheese – crumbled (as much as you want, I think I used 1/4 pound or less of fresh feta)
1 big handful of basil – sliced
In a bowl, mix together all the ingredients and season with salt and pepper. That’s it! Your recipe is done!
Notes: If possible, buy fresh feta cheese from the deli instead of the little plastic containers sold on a shelf. That stuff is so dried out it doesn’t really taste like feta anymore.
Servings: 3-4 servings
