Spiralized Greek Cucumber Salad with Lemon and Feta Recipe
This light cucumber Greek salad is the perfect meatless summer dish. Trust me, you’re going to want to make this all summer long! Fresh cucumber, tomatoes, bell pepper, olives, red onion, oregano, lemon juice, olive oil, and fresh feta – it’s filling, high in fiber and protein, perfect for lunch or dinner!
If you don’t own a spiralizer you can just dice the cucumbers with knife and make it a chopped Greek salad instead. I highly recommend using a decent Feta cheese, not a fat free Feta.
A great Meatless Monday meal. If you are making this ahead for lunch for work, you can leave the lemon juice and olive oil out, and pack it on the side, then just add it when you’re ready to eat. Enjoy!
