Cucumber Feta Salad Recipe

This Cucumber Salad is so easy & healthy. We couldn't stop eating it! @natashaskitchen

This Cucumber feta salad definitely has scrumptious Greek flare. The feta paired with lemon-balsamic dressing make you want to eat and eat and eat some more, which is perfectly ok because it’s a super healthy salad. It’s also easy-peasy to make.

This is my sister Anna’s Cucumber Feta Salad Recipe. She randomly snaps pictures of food she’s created and sends it my way. Anna I love it when you send me recipes via text, and keep it up, or else… :). This salad can serve 4 as a side for dinner but my hubby and I devoured (more like inhaled) the entire amount between the two of us and we didn’t regret it for a second. We wanted more!

    Yum!! Made this tonight for dinner with fish and some Greek rice. So delicious, I only had a few bites as the rest of the food finished cooking. I did add some garlic and oregano to the dressing. Look forward to making it when my cucumbers and peppers are ready in my garden! Reply

      I’m so looking forward to fresh cucumbers from the garden and this salad would be even better with homegrown veggies. Mmmm. 🙂 Reply

    Well, aren’t you in a salad mood lately! Haha not complaining! It’s exactly what we need in warm weather! Reply

    Hi Natasha would it make a difference if I used regular olive Oil in the dressing? Reply

      Hi Tanya, it will definitely work with regular. The Extra virgin adds some extra flavor, but regular will work just fine 🙂 Reply

    This looks amazing. I used to do this at home but without the cheese added. But will try this soon! For easier cooking you might want to try my trusted brand of premium stainless steel products

      Hi Sheena! Thanks so much for sharing 🙂 Reply

  • This is my favorite kind of salad. One that is packed full of good, hearty vegetables but doesn’t overpower any of them with a heavy dressing. Yum!
    PS. Hope you and the baby are doing well! Reply

      Hi Shelby, thank you! We are doing great. She’s a calm baby and sleeps well at night, which I’m so thankful for! 🙂 It’s a little harder to work with a baby at home but it’s do-able 🙂 Reply

          Just thinking about that combination makes my mouth water. I could eat plov every day for two weeks straight and be content 🙂 Reply

    This looks like such a simple but yummy salad! Love the combination.. I will be making it soon! Reply

      I had to refrain from putting the whole tub of cheese into my salad (wanted to save some for the next batch of salad). I love it too! Reply

    This looks like the salad I make except that I don’t put in the cheese. I’m going to have to try it your way also. Thanks for the recipe once again, Natasha. God Bless. Reply

      Thank you so much Diana 🙂 I think you’d love the cheese. It really makes the salad. Enjoy! Reply

      Yes, my wife has never had feta! So if I make this for mother’s day it will be pushing her out of her comfort zone. But I think she’ll really like it. Plus, I’ll be using the mandolin instead of her, last time, she cut the end of her finger off using it and had to rush to the emergency room to get it sown back on!! And because we have 2 small children, she had to drive herself to the ER, blood everywhere!! Reply

        Oh my goodness!! That finger slicing sounds like a disaster! We did discover a great tool to protect slippery fingers. I have my son put them on too when he insists on grating cheese. Here it is: No Cry Gloves Reply
