Cucumber, Tomato, and Feta Salad

I love the combination of textures and flavors in this simple salad – the crispness of cucumbers, the softness of tomatoes, the tang of feta. As for proportions of ingredients, it depends on what I have on hand and what I feel like eating at the time.

The Recipe


  • Cucumbers
  • Tomatoes
  • Feta
  • Garlic
  • Scallions
  • Parsley
  • Olives
  • Olive oil
  • Lemon juice


  1. I peel the cucumber or cucumbers and dice them.
  2. I quarter or cut into eighths a tomato or tomatoes.
  3. I mince a clove or two of garlic and also mince a scallion or two and also mince parsley.
  4. I add small chunks of feta. Sometimes I add olives, and sometimes I don’t.
  5. Whatever the mix, I toss it all with olive oil and lemon juice and salt and pepper.
