This said is easy, adaptable, refreshing and satisfying all at once. It can be served as a salad, a side dish, or (with the addition of a protein) served as a main course. —Ella

  • Prep time 20 minutes
  • Serves 4-6
Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup best quality feta cheese (I like Pastures of Eden)

In This Recipe
Directions
  1. Add first three ingredients to a bowl and mix together.
  2. Add the sliced olives and stir together gently.
  3. Slice the cucumbers very thin-- I use a vegetable peeler but a mandolin works almost as well. (You should have about 1 & 1/2 cup sliced cucumbers, packed.)
  4. Cut the tomatoes into chunks.
  5. Add cucumbers and tomatoes to the feta mixture, stir gently but thoroughly, and let it sit for 15-20 minutes to let the flavors marry.
  6. Serve as a salad, side dish or add cooked, drained garbanzo beans or cut-up rotisserie chicken to create a whole meal.
  7. Enjoy!
