2 English cucumbers, sliced
1 tablespoon Olivelle Lemon and Dill Tzatziki Rub & Seasoning
1 tablespoon Olivelle Sicilian Lemon Olive Oil
1 tablespoon Olivelle Cucumber Balsamic Vinegar
1 cup feta cheese crumbles
Prepare the cucumbers: Start by slicing the English cucumbers into thin rounds. If you prefer a slightly softer texture, you can also gently smash the cucumber slices using a kitchen mallet or the back of a knife. Smashing the cucumbers will help release some of their juices and absorb the flavors of the dressing more effectively. Place the cucumbers into a mixing bowl.
In a mixing bowl stir together the Feta cheese, Olivelle Lemon and Dill Tzatziki Rub & Seasoning, Lemon Olive Oil & Cucumber Balsamic until throughly mixed.
In the mixing bowl with the sliced & smashed cucumbers pour in the dressing. Toss the cucumbers gently to ensure they are evenly coated.
Chill and serve: Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or transfer the salad to an airtight container. Place it in the refrigerator to chill for at least 30 minutes before serving. Chilling allows the flavors to meld together and enhances the overall taste.
Enjoy: Once chilled, remove the Cucumber Salad from the refrigerator and give it a quick toss to refresh the flavors. Serve it as a side dish for grilled meats, as a topping for sandwiches, or as a refreshing snack on its own. The crispness of the cucumbers, the zesty dressing, and the creamy feta cheese will make this salad a summer favorite.
