Cucumber Salad

August 15, 2008 at 6:18 am 9 comments

I am so busy freezing and canning.

I figured I might stop long enough to post this refreshing and simple salad.

Cucumber, Tomato and Feta Salad

2 medium cucumbers , peeled and chopped
2 medium tomato, chopped
1/2 small onion diced
1/4 cup feta, crumbled
1 tablespoon wine vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 to 2 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
salt and pepper to taste

Just mix and enjoy. I like it room temperature.

Not sure when I’ll get back in the blogging swing since corn is coming in, along side tomato and green beans. I can not stop until I have it preserved or eaten. Oh the joys of vegetable gardening! :)

    This is exactly the kind of salad I like to make all the time at this time of year. I like it room temp too, and it is so handy to just sit aside while I make the rest of dinner.
    I have pots of tomatoes, I don’t have much land to speak of.
    I am committed to learning how to can this year. So far I have only frozen and dehydrated (mostly herbs)
    We are picking up canning accoutrements on Sunday and I am jumping in.
    I sort of wish I hadn’t read Larry’s Party where she fatally poisons her mother in law with her home canning. It has put some fear in my heart!

    Natashya when you can, read stuff about it on the web and go by tried recipes.

    There is a lot of good information on the web about canning.

    I understand where you are coming from though. Sometimes I have felt the same, but have been doing it since 2000 and being very cautious have had good results.

    I am so jealous of your canning and freezing and your beautiful salad. Gorgeous! My tomatoes bit the dust this year. They either drowned of the Midwest overkill rains or died of a bad attitude. I can’t decide which…

    Happy canning!

    Thanks Glenna.

    Bad attitude has killed some of my plants before but tomatoes have faired well this year.

    Sorry you have had so much rain. Send some my way we are too dry.

    Ah yes, the joys… I’m so damn jealous I can hardly stand it. My vegetable freezer is turned off. OFF!!!!!
    No garden, sigh…..

    I love your recipes – tried a few of them and very successful. Would you mind contacting me by email as I have a coffee related business proposition to speak to you about.

What Spice Are You

You Are Cilantro

The bad news is that
there are some people
who can't stand you.
The good news is that
most people love you more
than anything else in the world.
You are distinct, unusual, fresh,
and very controversial.
And you wouldn't have it
any other way.

What Spice Are You?
