Cucumber Salad

It’s summer; we want fast, simple, delicious meals. Produce is at its peak in flavor and quality. Let’s not over think things. Simple salads like this one are loved by one and all.

Whenever I do a BBQ, I like to have a fresh, crunchy, tasty salad to cool things off and counter balance the heat and flame-charred grilled veggies. The possibilities are endless! You can add spices or different herbs that complement the meal. But two ingredients I always know will please the crowd are feta cheese and kalamata olives. So when cooking for new friends and guests, those are my go-to ingredients.

This is a simplified version of my Greek quinoa salad, which is nearly a meal in itself.
