Feta olive salad

One day while I stood in line at the deli waiting for my turkey I saw a delicious looking salad. It seemed to have cucumbers, tomatoes and olives. It was quite pricey per pound and for 8 people I would need hmm, allot! So I went home and tossed together the things I thought were in it. I love this combination and this is my version! A note– I have found this salad does not last long so make it right before serving and make enough for that meal. I eat it later but it doesn’t stay fresh!

Ingredients

2 cucumbers, cut into chunks

3 tomatoes cut into chunks

1/2 bunch parsley chopped fine

2 cloves garlic minced

10 kalamata olives, no pits, sliced

1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese

juice of one lemon

2 Tbs. olive oil

1 tsp. salt or to taste

  7. Thank you for sharing! πŸ™‚ This is perfect for when we have a barbecue. I think it would be good as a meal too, especially if I add chicken or tuna!

    • Well I put cubed left over chicken and it was yummy, but as I stated this salad does not taste great for long maybe the feta! so we eat it immediately! But yes I loved it with chicken and it is a meal then!

  18. Mmmm. These are all of my favorite salad things. I must make this today. It’s the classic Israeli salad, served everywhere in Israel, with my favorite Greek elements added in. Yumilicious!

  20. Wonderful classic Greek salad … brings back so many memories of lunchtime in any taverna with a glass of retzina which tastes wonderful in Greece and like petrol anywhere else in the world and this salad as you watch the azure sky argue with the azure sea for who is the azurest of them all. Thank you for bringing it all back to me πŸ™‚

  22. So simple but so delicious. Am transported to Crete and my holidays there – the best olives and feta cheese. I loved the gnarled trees of the olive grooves, so atmospheric and beautifully haunting.

  24. I love this, Lynz. I’ve been eating a variant (blue cheese rather than feta) every day while my cucumbers and tomatoes last.

  26. Feta is also called salad cheese because of the rules from Greece. They don’t allow the name Feta st others than Greek cheese.
    Your salad has all delicious parts inside, I will try this recipe Lynz πŸ˜€

  28. This sounds wonderful, Lynn. I’ve made cucumber and tomato salads before but never with olives and cheese. Sounds like something to try before the good Jersey tomatoes are gone!

  36. Lynz, many of the dishes you prepare not only look appetizing, but also very healthy. Also I just notice you started following my blog, and such bravery should be rewarded. However, I hope you’ll settle for a few laughs… until I can hire some real comedy writers. Sincerely though, Lynz, thank you I’m delighted your following, and I’ll do my best to regularly put a smile on your face.
