I came across this cucumber with feta and mint salad not too long ago. I really liked everything about the salad from the crisp, cool, and juicy cucumbers to the salty feta, the fresh herbs and lemon vinaigrette. I thought that this cool and refreshing salad would finish off my lamb souvlaki dinner perfectly. Although I really liked the sound of the mint in the salad, I was already going with a dill theme in the meal so I used dill in the cucumber salad as well. The dill went really well in the salad though next time I will have to try it with the mint. This salad was really simple to make and came together in no time at all. I will be making this a lot over the summer.

Sounds delish! Nice and refreshing for a hot day…and I love feta!
With a half cup of dill, this salad must be crazy with flavor. Thanks for sharing this recipe with WHB, Kevin!
Cucumber is so refreshing isn’t it? I love salads like this, especially in the summer.
Oh cucumbers. They are my favorite salad ingredient and this recipe sounds just delicious.

I am so glad that you enjoyed the salad Kevin. It really is quite refreshing. I have to give the credit to Aglaia Kremezi of the cooking school on Kea. Her family has made this salad for generations:D
This whole meal sounds absolutely delicious. I love cucumbers, and any kind of salad with them!
Love your site. I have tagged you for a six word memoir. See my site for details.
You’re turning into a fully paid-up Greek, aren’t you?! Still, with this kind of food, that could be a good plan…
This does sound like a perfect spring salad. The more dill the better. Very refreshing.
This goes hand in hand with the perfect weather in NY!

I had just been looking at home made ice cream on another blog when I clicked through to this salad. If anything, it ramped up my salivating, Kevin. So fresh and delicious! And I think the dill was a really good call.
Kevin, you are an endless source of fabulous looking recipes! Looking forward to making this or the summer!

That looks delightfully simple to prepare and like its loaded with flavor. Seems like a great refreshing, pick-me-up kind of side dish for many a summer dish. I’ll be remembering this one as the weather keeps warming up…seems like it could go quite nicely with many a fish dish!
looks so nice and light and refreshing!
simple to make and refreshing too!
