Greek Salad, for a hot day.


This salad is fresh and easy to make on short notice and requires no cooking.
It goes well with anything from the grill.

Cucumber tomato salad.

1 container cherry tomatoes or
2-3 vine ripened tomatoes
1 cucumber
3 ounces of feta cheese
16-20 Kalamata olives
2 table spoons olive oil
1/2 to 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper to taste
If you are using regular tomatoes cut them in 8 parts (quarters?)
Peel and cut cucumber in 1-2 inch cubes
Combine olive oil and vinegar with salt and pepper and set aside.

Toss all ingredients together.

I don’t like to make this too much ahead as the tomatoes get mushy and the cheese tends to take on too much of the dressing.

 

I serve ours a bit “deconstructed” because tomatoes give me heartburn, CollegeGirl doesn’t like Feta and BubbleWrapBoy doesn’t care for Kalamata olives.
So everyone is free to make their own on their plate.

Enjoy!
