Cucumber Salad

Cucumber Salad

This is a recipe I’ve made a few times lately. I adapted it from a similar salad I had from a friend. It is absolutely delicious, packed with nutrients, and just about the only fat is heart healthy olives and olive oil! This recipe would be delicious made with ingredients straight from your summer garden.

6 medium-sized cucumbers, cut into 1″ chunks
1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes, rinsed and drained (or 3-4 whole tomatoes, diced)
1/3 cup sliced black olives
4 ounces fat-free feta cheese
4 artichoke hearts, finely chopped
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 teaspoon each oregano, basil, thyme, garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon each salt and black pepper

In a bowl, mix together cucumbers, tomatoes, black olives, feta, and artichoke hearts. Separately, mix together olive oil and seasonings. Toss vegetables with oil mixture. Serve cold.
