I know there are pumpkin and apple things popping up all over social media – but like I said before, I’m not quite ready to let go of summer yet. This Cucumber Feta Salad has been on our menu the last few weeks while I’ve been testing it. It’s a perfect side salad for any Mediterranean dinner or serve it up as a quasi-salsa/topping on top of grilled steak, chicken or fish. It’s bright and light and briny and perfect. I made it on Sunday over a side of salmon… literally the definition of perfection.

  1. Looks delicious? How long do you think it would last in the fridge if preparing it for 1-2 people and wanting leftovers?

    1. I just made this for dinner & it’s delicious! I don’t like shallots, so I left those out. I did throw in a handful of cherry tomatoes to bulk it up a little. This will be a regular for sure! Thanks for sharing!

    I tried this recipe at the weekend, and I LOVE it! I have never tried using Dill in a salad dressing but oh its so good and fresh, brings the dish alive, especially the cucumber.

    There were no leftovers, but I have made it twice since then. Thank you for such a wonderful combination.

    Our family found this recipe before new years, we’ve now made it five times in ten days. Very delicious and fresh addition to many of our winter meals!

    I’ve made this twice now (as is) – it’s so delicious! I served it with grilled salmon both times. It’s definitely filling and you don’t need much seasoning on your protein because it’s SO flavorful.

    This salad is amazing, and tastes even better the next day. I did not have fresh dill on hand so I used some green onions from the garden. I love how the avocado gives it a creaminess that keeps me coming back for more!
    Thanks for sharing all your wonderful recipes, and thanks Mama D!

    OBSESSED with this salad! This will be on repeat from now until forever. So fresh and light, yet satisfying. Could eat just a whole bowl of this for a meal!

    So delish and easy! Always a hit! The vegan feta from Trader Joe’s goes well with this if you are dairy free!
