Cool as a Cucumber

Cucumber Feta Salad
2 Weight Watcher Points Plus (1/4th serving)

One thing that is hard about summer is the salads. Seriously people does every salad need to be covered in full fat mayo? I have made this salad 3 times now and so far it has been a big hit.

I am in love with this salad right now because:

1. It uses feta. I love feta, almost as much as I love blue cheese.
2. There is no lettuce which I normally pick around anyways to get the good stuff.
3. There isn't any mayo.
4. There is nothing better in the summer than a cold cucumber salad.

This is really easy to throw together and you could make substitutions for what you like or have on hand. I served this for the Moms at a playgroup and added some drained canned tuna (points will change). Here is how I made mine today...

  • One large seedless cucumber, diced = 0 pp
  • 1 medium plum tomato, seeded & diced = 0 pp
  • 1/4 cup red onion, diced = 0 pp
  • 2 oz of feta, crumbled (I like to use the block feta in brine because I think it tastes better) = 4 pp
  • 1 T olive oil = 4 pp
  • 1/2 - 1 T lemon juice = 0 pp
  • Splash of vinegar = 0 pp (I used white wine vinegar but use whatever you fancy)
  • Salt, pepper & oregano to taste = o pp
  • Total = 8 pp
  • 1/4th serving = 2 pp
  • Dice vegetables & combine with feta
  • Whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, vinegar & seasonings. Pour on salad.
