Of course tomatoes and cucumbers are delicious just on their own, but I also love using them in recipes such as this Tomato Cucumber Feta Salad.
End of summer around here means an abundance of fresh tomatoes and cucumbers from the garden.
Coming up with creative ways to enjoy these is one of my goals each year.
It’s always good to have goals, right?!
How to make Tomato Cucumber Feta Salad
I made a sauce using mayo, sour cream, feta cheese crumbles, dried dill, garlic powder, kosher salt, and pepper.
Just mix it all together and it’s ready for the tomatoes and cucumbers 🙂
There’s just something so special about anything fresh from the garden in my opinion…just look at those gorgeous tomatoes and cucumbers!
I just cut them into bite size pieces and threw them into a bowl.
Add the feta sauce and toss until evenly coated.
The key here is to be very gentle and almost fold this together.
We don’t want the tomatoes to get smushed and fall apart.
Once it’s evenly mixed, taste for seasoning.
Add more kosher salt and pepper if needed.
Mine needed just a bit more of both.
I like to serve this with more feta crumbled over top and sliced green onions.
This Tomato Cucumber Feta Salad was our side along with dinner.
I made Smoked Pickle Brined Chicken Wings and this was a great. refreshing salad to go along with them.
It would also be an amazing salad to bring to a party or picnic 🙂
