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.
~ 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!
Hope you try this salad, you won’t be disappointed!
