Cucumber & Tomato Salad

wp-1472774081799.jpgWhile others are lamenting the end of summer, I am still in summer produce heaven … thanks to the warm climate of Houston.

Cucumbers seem to be the best produce that hangs on for the longest.  Tomatoes just don’t do well in all this heat.

I love a good salad, especially with cucumbers.

This salad is reminiscent of the salads on so many tables in the midwestern summers… cucumbers, tomatoes and a vinaigrette.

I’ve changed this one up a bit and added a greek flavor, with the vegan feta and kalamata olives.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Cucumber & Tomato Salad


3 cucumbers, peeled, seeded, and chopped

1 cup grape tomatoes, quartered

1/4 red onion, diced

1/2 cup vegan feta cheese

1/4 cup kalamata olives, chopped

1 recipe of "magical" applesauce vinaigrette, substitute cumin and cinnamon for greek seasoning

sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper, to taste


Combine all ingredients and refrigerate until serving

    Oooh yes! It’s still hot here and I’ve been craving cool salads like this. It totally reminds me of a nice, revamped salad I used to have in the summers growing up. And homemade vegan feta? Yes, please!

    Great idea to add the vegan feta! It was cold here the past weekend as a tropical storm was around us but it’s back to the 90s in NJ so this will be a perfect option for me this week!

    Thanks so much for linking up with us for #HealthyVeganFridays! I’m Pinning and sharing!
