Tips To Keep Cucumber Salad Fresh
When slicing cucumber ribbons, stop once you reach the seeds. This is where a lot of extra moisture is stored.
Drain the cucumber ribbons in a colander or gently pat them with paper towels to absorb some of the extra moisture.
Keep all ingredients separate until just before serving. The cucumber ribbons and dressing can be combined about 15 minutes ahead of time.
Feta cheese should only be added right before serving. The high salt content in the feta cheese will make the cucumber ribbons become soft and watery.
Get inspired with this summer’s seasonal vegetables. Add tomato to create a hearty cucumber tomato feta salad. Or go for a greek theme and substitute fresh oregano for the dill, add ripe olives, tomatoes and red onion to create the perfect greek salad. The possibilities are endless!
