Tips for Keeping Cucumber Salad Fresh
You may be wondering, can this be made ahead of time, and if I do will it stay fresh? The answer is definitely using these few tips!
- Keep the cucumber ribbons and the feta separate until ready to serve! The salt content in the feta cheese will make the cucumber ribbons too soft and watery.
- Keep the dressing separate as well, then combine everything right before serving.
- Drain the cucumbers in a colander or gently pat the ribbons with paper towels to absorb some of the extra moisture.
These tips will keep your salad from getting mushy while storing it.
