It seems that salads are most popular when the warmer weather hits. I had to make this cucumber feta salad to commemorate the beautiful weather we’ve been having. If you need a fresh side dish or snack, this cucumber salad is a great choice!

How Do You Make Cucumber Feta Salad?

There’s not much to making this cucumber salad, it’s as easy as chopping everything up and mixing it in a bowl. This salad contains sliced cucumbers, red onion, feta cheese, avocado and fresh dill. The dressing is a combination of olive oil, spices, red wine vinegar, and mustard, and it only takes a quick second to make.

There are various types of cucumbers such as English cucumbers, little Persian cucumbers and the traditional waxed cucumbers. You can use whatever type of cucumber you like for this salad. Be sure to remove the seeds from your cucumber so the salad doesn’t get watery. To remove the seeds from your cucumber, simply slice it in half lengthwise and use a spoon to scrape out the seeds.

Other great additionas to this cucumber feta salad are

  • Mint
  • Olives
  • Scallions
  • Lemon Juice
  • Tomatoes

Cucumbers, red onion, feta cheese, dill and avocado topped with Greek dressing.

You’ll want to make sure the red onions are thinly sliced before adding them to your cucumber salad. I use a mandoline slicer to get paper thin onion slices.

For the best tasting salad, use the feta cheese that comes in a brick. The brick style feta cheese either comes wrapped in plastic or in a tub of brine. The pre-prepared crumbled feta in tubs is often coated with anti-caking agents and doesn’t taste as fresh.

How Do You Make Cucumber Salad Creamy?

A popular way to eat this cucumber salad is creamy style. Many people simply add sour cream to their recipe in order to make it creamier. Ranch dressing is a great addition as well to make it creamy.

How Do you Make Cucumber Salad With Vinegar?

It’s actually common for vinegar to be used in cucumber salad. However, it takes a little longer because it has to be refrigerated for around two hours. The cold allows the ingredients to stay fresh while it steeps in the vinegar mixture. It’s a delicious way to make it!

    This is so incredibly delicious! Made it last night with some home grown cukes. Didn’t have any avocados on hand but still turned out amazing. So crunchy and cool. Definitely will be making again!

  2. This is a family staple in our house. We make some variation of this recipe about twice a week. My toddler loves helping make the dressing and Iā€™m happy to report that her interest in helping me prepare our yummy salads has even inspired her to nibble on some vegetables here and there….this is a HUGE WIN in our house. We always make the dressing exactly as described but we throw in all diff types of ingredients with our dressing and feta. Sometimes we add peppers, baby spinach, tomatoes….whatever we have on hand. It ALWAYS tastes yummy! Thank you šŸ™‚

  3. I would love to try this. What struck me is the preparation time. Since I am still working, easy to prepare foods is what I am into and I’ll probably include this one.

  4. Looks like a delicious recipe. I love avocados! I also love cucumbers. I can’t wait to make it.

  5. Cucumbers and avocado are my two favorites but i never thought it could be combined. Thank you for giving me the idea šŸ™‚

    This looks like a great salad and I need a new salad for my family. I love all the vegetables and the feta is even better.

  8. Personally I would love this salad sprinkled with feta. Rest of the family I would have to change out the cheese.
