This Cucumber Tomato Feta Salad has simple ingredients that are a winning combination – so refreshing and flavorful! We can’t get enough of our garden cucumbers and tomatoes so we have been experimenting with all different flavors and cheeses and this is a new favorite.

The feta cheese gives this salad satisfying Greek Salad flavor and adds the salty notes so you hardly have to add any salt (or you can skip the salt altogether). When you add salt to cucumbers and tomatoes, they start to get juicy and soft so less salt means the salad will stay crisp longer.

There’s a surprising ingredient in the dressing that takes this salad to a whole new level!

    A great, easy salad recipe that is going to go into regular rotation in my house.

    Simple flavours – and it’d be easy to add to if you needed to.

    I thought I would like the cumin, but the combination of the cumin and the lemon was pretty strong. Very acidic. I added about 1 teaspoon of honey, some salt, a bit more olive oil and a pinch of dried thyme to even out the taste.

      Hi Cathy, just 1/4 tsp of cumin should not have been too strong – did you use real lemon juice and not from concentrate? I highly recommend fresh lemon juice for dressings.

    Hi! Just wondering – What do I have to do to see the comments? They don’t show up no matter what I try to click on. Also, you don’t mention removing the pressed garlic before adding the dressing to the salad. Does “pressed” also mean minced garlic in this case? Thank you!!

      Hi Cyndi! The comment section is below the recipe card. I just tested it myself for this recipe and I am able to view it. If you are using a computer, then the comments should just appear but if you are on a tablet or phone, you might have to click on “read comments/reviews.”
      If this is not working, there might be a glitch or error on your device. You can try refreshing or restarting to see if that helps. I used a garlic press which is pictured in the image above to “press” the garlic. It’s not quite the same as mincing but if you do not have one, you can finely mince and smash your garlic on a cutting board and then add it in. I hope that helps.

        Wow, thank you so much! I do have garlic presses, but I prefer to smash it with my Sudoku and mince it from there (large family and I make large quantities and this is actually more efficient). I just wanted to make sure that it wasn’t meant to just be smashed (also known as “pressed” to me). Dressing is done now and in the fridge for this lovely salad tomorrow, can’t wait! And, yes, of course there’s a highly visible button to click (in red no less!) to view comments and I missed it! So sorry! Thank you so much again for your prompt and helpful response. I’m looking forward to perusing your entire website, as my beautiful, wonderful mother was Ukrainian, and a terrific cook.
