Greek Cucumbers



      I have had a long love affair with Greek food. I grew up in a pretty big city and lived
      4 minutes, walking distance to a Greek restaurant..that's when it all started. I was
      obsessed with baklava, moussaka, spanakopita, and all things feta related. I was the -
      only 10 year old that I knew that would order a spinach pizza with feta over a cheese
      pizza. Fast forward 20 years and not much has changed. I will cook anything Greek
      and I will throw feta on just about anything. This recipe is very easy and can be served
      alone or as a side dish...it would go prefect with lemon chicken. Enjoy!!
       
                                                                   Greek Cucumbers

                         2 English cucumbers, sliced
                         2 tablespoons red onion, minced
                         1 garlic clove, minced
                         1/2 lemon, juiced
                         1 tablespoon olive oil
                         1 teaspoon oregano
                         4 ounces feta
                         salt and pepper

                      1) Mix all of the 9 ingredients in a bowl and serve.


                                         Here are a few more of my favorite Greek dishes.

  2. So I love cheese....really any kind. Even stinky cheeses. Haha....so anything with feta I pretty much love too. This would be a great snack as well!! I crave tangy foods--so this is perfect. If I crave this now--what in the world will I be like when I'm pregnant?

  9. One of my favorite things about living in New Hampshire is the availability of Greek food. I didn't have that in Louisiana. These cucumbers look amazing. I'm pinning this one to try soon. I'm so ready for fresh food like this.
