Taste of Tuesdays : Cucumber Spring Salad

When it comes to healthy eating the thing I struggle with the most is coming up with sides for my protein. I mean I eat about 3-4 pounds of Broccoli a week but after a while that gets really boring. So after scouring Pinterest I ran across this cucumber feta tomato salad. I love that it is a salad minus the lettuce. As much as I love salads this is a little re-vamp that I know will make it into my rotation a few times a week.  The original link can be found here.

ingredients

Ingredients:

~ 1 cucumbers – thinly sliced ~ 1-2 slices of red onions, thinly sliced or diced ~ 4-6 cherry tomatoes – halved ~ 1/4 cup of feta cheese Optional Add Ins: Walnuts, Pecans, Bacon, sliced pears.

For the dressing I used the dressing from my Tomato, Plum, Mozzarella Salad: It makes it so light and fresh tasting.

Dressing: 1 TBSP White Balsamic Vinegar (I used a Fig infused White Vinegar – AMAZING – found it at stop and shop) ~ 1 TBSP lemon juice ~ 1 TBSP EVOO ~ Pinch of Sea Salt and Fresh ground pepper, 1/4 tsp of crushed garlic

The directions for this could not be any easier – slice, dice, dump in a bowl and you are done! You are welcome!

  1. I struggle with side dishes too! I always make the same thing: salad, spinach, asparagus, squash, zucchini… but those get so boring after a while. I will definitely be making your version of this! I’ve made something similar before but I always forget about it! So glad you linked up with us!

      Same for me I was getting bored of just plain on veggies on the side. This was a total face palm moment for me. I usually put the same ingredients on my salad so nixing the lettuce should have been a no-brainer! Duh, me! I am so trying your egg rolls too! Yum!

  2. Yum! This is so perfect for Spring and Summer!!

      Thank you. It is so light and tasty! Perfect for BBQ’s and lazy summer days for sure!

  3. Yum, this looks so good! I just bought a bunch of cukes and have everything else on hand, so I may need to give it a shot this week!

  4. This looks delish and perfect for summer!
