Greek cucumber salad is an easy recipe with cucumber, tomatoes and olives. This fresh salad only takes 15 minutes to make and is perfect for lunch!
What I like best about this classic Greek salad because you can adjust the recipe to taste.
I don't particularly like olives, but I like the cucumbers and tomatoes. I add a little more of those ingredients for myself and donate all my olives to my husband, who happens love them.
Onion - I like to use red onions for this salad.
Feta cheese - A delicious crumbly, slightly tangy cheese made with sheep or goats milk
This cheese is very popular all over the world. In Greece, it is, in fact, one of the most important export products.
Olives - I always use kalamata olives.
This Greek cucumber salad is super easy to make. All you have to do is clean and dice the vegetables, make the dressing and crumble the feta cheese. That's it!
For this recipe you will need a large bowl, a cutting board and a small bowl.
This cucumber salad will keep in the fridge for about two days. I recommend storing the dredding in a separate jar and add that right before serving.
