Cucumber Salad Recipes

Cucumbers are a good source of vitamins’ C, A and K. They are loaded with potassium and low in cholesterol, sodium and saturated fat. That’s all the information you are going to get from me on that subject. These are my own home recipes and I wouldn’t know where to start counting their calories. Relax, enjoy the fruits of your labor!


Greek Salad



1 or 2 fresh-picked cucumbers
1 head of iceberg lettuce, torn into bite sized pieces
3 medium sized fresh tomatoes, sliced
1 small red onion
1 green pepper, diced
1 red pepper, diced
1 pound Feta cheese
˝ cup pitted Greek olives
˝ cup pitted black olives
Italian herbal style dressing


Combine the first 6 ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Crumble the Feta cheese evenly over the top of the salad and then add the olives on top of that. To keep the salad from wilting, don’t add the dressing until you are ready to serve.


Makes 4 large or 8 small servings.


Simple Cucumber Salad



2 or 3 Fresh picked cucumbers, sliced
1/3 cup of red wine vinegar
1/4 cup granulated sugar


Combine the vinegar and sugar in a medium sized bowl and mix until sugar is dissolved. Toss in the cucumbers and voila! This recipe can also be used with fresh tomatoes or for a real taste treat, use both together.
