Cucumber and Feta Oh Yeah!!!

It is a good idea to serve salad with every meal. Salad is obviously not cooked which means it is packed with nutrients. So it makes perfect sense to make it part of every meal. I want to inspire you to not just think of greens when you think of preparing a salad for your family. At our events we set up a Mediterranean station, which consists of a chef making chicken and lamb pita pockets to order stuffed with lettuce, vegetables and yogurt dill sauce. The crowd goes crazy for this cuisine. A side salad consisting of cucumber feta salad is often presented as a compliment and let me tell you even the kids love it. So tonight Id like you prepare a meal with a Mediterranean flair . It could be home made pita pockets or a roasted chicken seasoned with lemon and oregano. Serve this salad up as a side and wow!!!; you've create a culinary home run.


2 medium cucumbers
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup chopped onions
1 cup crumbled feta cheese
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Fresh Dill


Cut cucumbers into 1/2-in. cubes; place in a bowl. Sprinkle with salt. Stir in onions. Combine with the cheese, lemon juice, chopped dill, olive oil and pepper. You can substitute the oil for sour cream if you wish . It is a little bit more fattening but delicious..
