This cucumber tomato feta salad is like a Greek salad. It’s simple to make, full of fresh flavors, and great as a side dish or as a first dish. The crisp cucumbers and juicy tomatoes go well with the salty feta cheese, making it refreshing and satisfying. It’s also a delicious accompaniment to grilled chicken kebabs.

Add-ins and substitutions

Here are some ideas how you can customize salad to your preferences:

  • Cheese swap: Don’t have feta? Substitute with queso fresco, mozzarella, burrata, farmer’s cheese, or goat cheese.
  • Protein power: Add cubed chicken, turkey, salami, ham, or steak.
  • Dressing diversity: Try different oils like avocado or olive, or add honey-mustard dressing.
  • Leftover cooked quinoa or chopped nuts can be added for extra protein and texture.

Recipe tips

  • Uniform chop: Chop or julienne all vegetables to a similar size for balanced bites.
  • Tomato timing: Add tomatoes last and mix gently to avoid a soggy salad.
  • Dressing last: Hold off on oil, feta, salt, and pepper until serving to prevent the vegetables from releasing water.
  • For a vibrant presentation, choose colorful cherry tomatoes or a mix of red and yellow tomatoes.

Storing and freezing

Storing: store the salad without dressing in an airtight container for up to 1 day. Add dressing just before serving.
Freezing: not recommended as thawed vegetables become mushy. Enjoy this salad fresh for the best experience.
