How to Make Cucumber Salad with Feta
This healthy cucumber salad is made with cucumber ribbons that are super easy to make, too! Use a vegetable peeler to slice the cucumber in even strips from one end to the other. Stop peeling ribbons when you reach the seed in the center of the cucumber.
Cucumber feta salad has two parts – the salad base and the dressing. Once you have cucumber ribbons made this salad is easy to assemble and enjoy!
- Prep: Combine the dressing ingredients and set aside.
- Assemble: Toss cucumber ribbons gently with the dressing and sprinkle feta cheese on the top.
Let salad marinate about 15 minutes before serving.
You may be wondering, can this be made ahead of time, and the answer is definitely using these few tips!
- Keep the cucumber ribbons and the feta separate until it’s ready to serve because the salt content in the feta cheese will make the cucumber ribbons too soft and watery.
- The dressing should be kept separately as well and then everything is put together right before serving.
Tips for Keeping Cucumber Salad Fresh
The best way to keep this salad fresh is by draining it in a colander. Another quick and easy method is to 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.
