Tomato Cucumber Salad with Feta

This is one of my favorite “go to” salads in the summer months when tomatoes are abundant and taste the best. So on a hot summer day like today, we made this tomato cucumber salad as our main course.  We also like to make this salad as a side dish when we are barbecuing chicken or steak.

Local Tomato Cucumber Salad

When preparing the salad ahead of time, chop and mix the veggies in a bowl and store in the fridge until your are ready to serve.  Add the salad dressing and crumbled feta cheese right before serving to avoid a soggy salad.

This salad is quick and easy to make using succulent tomatoes and cucumbers grown locally on the Bruce Peninsula.
