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.

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

      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!

    If I don’t have fresh dill, do you think I should use dried or should I use fresh cilantro, basil or parsley?

    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.
