How to Make Cucumber Feta Salad

This fresh summer salad could not be easier to make!

  1. Prepare cucumber ribbons and arrange in a bowl.
  2. Whisk together dressing ingredients in a separate bowl.
  3. Assemble the ribbons and dressing for about 15 minutes. Add the feta just before serving.

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.

  1. Looks super tasty. I are definitely trying especially that one of my boys loves cucumber and the other feta 🙂 thank you very much!

  2. I chopped the cucumber and I didn’t have a fresh lemon, so I added balsamic vinegar instead. It turned out great and gonna serve it tonite with fresh baked cod and mashed potatoes.
