Cucumber and Feta Greek Salad
Ingredients
  • 2-4 cucumbers (if you can get the seedless or hothouse, these are nice, but any type will do)
  • Sea salt
  • 1 c. good quality crumbled feta cheese
  • 3 T. chopped fresh oregano leaves
  • 1 T. minced garlic
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • Zest and juice of 3 lemons
  • ⅓ c. balsamic vinegar
  • 2-4 oz. extra virgin olive oil
  • Fresh black pepper
Instructions
  1. Slice cucumbers as thinly as possible. If you have a mandolin or vegetable slicer that works well.

  4. Add the zest and lemon juice and vinegar.
  5. Whisk in the amount of oil you desire.
  6. Drain off excess liquid from cucumbers. Add the cucumbers to the dressing mixture.
