Summer is such a wonderful time of the year for cooking, or lack there of. I really love that I can count on my garden and farmer’s market to produce fresh veggies, and fruit for garden to table meals.
Quick and easy salads are a staple of mine for the summer because who wants to be slaving in a hot kitchen? I know I sure don’t! Plus, eating lighter in the hot weather just makes me feel better.
My inspiration for this Zesty Red Onion, Feta and Cucumber Salad stemmed from the fact that I recently got to try Hidden Valley Ranch’s newest line up of dressings. We liked them all, but really loved the Hidden Valley Cucumber Ranch flavor.
It tasted like a garden fresh cucumber dipped in some fresh ranch dressing. It is so light, zesty, and flavorful. Rather than mix up my own cucumber salad dressing, I figured I’d take a shortcut and use this product.
Can you say score?
The thinly sliced cucumber, and red onion paired perfectly with the feta and Hidden Valley Cucumber Ranch.
I even threw in some kalamata olives for a Greek salad sort of flair. Even my pickiest or picky eaters loved this light and refreshing salad. Plus, it is packed with antioxidants and pretty inexpensive to make.
This cucumber, red onion, and feta salad is perfect for any cookout or BBQ plans you may have.
