Cucumber, Corn + Tomato Salad

Feta, fresh dill and lime juice are the stars of this flavor-filled salad.

This über easy salad is perfect for these warm evenings we've been getting lately. Bulgarian style feta, fresh dill and lime juice add boosts of flavor to this refreshing salad.  

  • 3 persian cucumbers, diced
  • 2 roma tomatoes, diced
  • 1/2 small red onion, diced
  • 1/4 cup chopped dill
  • juice of one lime (or small lemon)
  • 2 tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 bulgarian style feta, crumbled*
  • sea salt
  • cracked black pepper
*you can use any type of feta. I happened to have the Bulgarian style feta on hand. It is a bit saltier and creamier than Greek feta, and full of flavor.

In medium bowl, add corn, tomatoes, cucumbers, onions and dill.  In small bowl, combine lime juice, olive oil, and dill.  Pour over salad and stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Top with feta and voilà! Serve as a side or pair it with a crisp Sancerre and enjoy as a main dish. Bon appétit!
