Tomato, Cucumber, and Feta Salad

Do you have garden veggies coming out of your ears?  I usually have such a brown thumb, but this year, something flipped (a pure stroke of good luck) and my garden really flourished!  It was so much fun to watch things grow and be able to give away delicious, fresh, organic produce to friends and family.  As much fun as it is, it also forced me to get a little creative with how I was going to eat our bounty.  There are only so many cucumber slices and sides of grilled zucchini that a girl can handle.


Enter this salad.  It's a classic, and you have probably made it before or had it at a pot luck, but it's one of those things that is easy to throw together, and usually pleases a crowd.  Oh, and it helps use up some of those garden veggies!  If you don't have a garden, have no fear.  The grocery stores are fully stocked with amazing produce this time of year, and it's all about supply and demand...which means the things you need to make this salad are most likely really darn cheap!


Let's get to it!

Ingredients:
3 cucumbers, peeled and sliced (about 3-4 cups)
4 cups cherry tomatoes, sliced in half or quarters, depending on their size
1/2 red onion, diced
8 oz crumbled feta

Dressing Ingredients:
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 Tbs dijon mustard
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried parsley
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

Directions:
Mix dressing ingredients and whisk to combine.  Pour over remaining ingredients and toss to coat.  Refrigerate until ready to serve!
