A Zesty Red Onion, Feta and Cucumber Salad Recipe

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.

I love eating salads in the summer, something refreshing about it. I also love sliced cucumbers with a little salt but the dressing sounds amazing.
Oh I love this. I mean, it is kind of like a salad I grew up eating, but creamier with that Cucumber ranch. I will be trying this out very soon :) YUMMY

Oh that looks so delicious! I wish half of these ingredients didn’t give me heartburn right now. Silly pregnancy! But the husband would love this one.

This sounds like a really good salad! I love to make salads like this when the veggies are fresh from the farmers markets.
I had something like this at Whole Foods, so it’s really cool to get a good recipe. I want to try making it on my own.
That looks great! I’d take that along to a picnic or a potluck anyday!
I need this RIGHT NOW! It’s a perfect light dish for hot summer days and those are some amazing flavors! I can’t wait to whip it up!
This is a wonderful recipe! I love all the flavors going on in this one. The cool of the cucumber and the bite of the pepper is going to be great!
You had me at the very first picture. OMG, I am wanting some of this right now!
Sound like the perfect summer salad and I am a huge fan of Feta. Going to have to give this one a try.
Get those olives out of there and I’d make this every day! Can’t get enough of feta!

I haven’t noticed the Cucumber Ranch here yet. Hubby would devour this salad.
That looks amazing! I am a huge fan of feta, and with fresh onions and cucumbers available now, this would be a perfect lunch!
