Ingredients
  

For The Salad

  • 1 english cucumber diced
  • 1 small package cherry tomatoes sliced in half
  • 1/4 red onion diced
  • 4 oz. crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 green pepper diced
  • 1/8 c. sliced black olives

For The Dressing

  • 1/4 c. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 lemon juiced
  • 2 tbsp. red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 1 tsp. parsley
  • 1 tsp. basil
  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • kosher salt to taste

Instructions
 

  • Slice cherry tomatoes in half and lay in a flat layer. Liberally salt and allow tomatoes to sit; the salt will help pull out the water content of the tomatoes.
  • .Dice the cucumber, red onion, and bell pepper. Add to a bowl, along with sliced black olives.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil, red wine vinegar, honey, basil, oregano, garlic powder, and parsley. Pour dressing over chopped vegetables and stir until well-coated.
  • Pat the top of the tomatoes with a paper towel; add tomatoes and feta to the salad. Fold. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Use one English cucumber for this recipe or two American cucumbers. If using American, remove the seeds. I personally leave the skin on the cucumber for texture.
  • Cut the tomatoes first and salt them. This will allow the salt time to pull out the moisture content of the tomatoes.
  • Don't skimp on the dried herbs in the dressing -- they make all of the difference!
