Greek Cucumber Salad

A simple, refreshing Greek salad is a great go-to for those hot summer nights when you just don't feel like turning on the stove. The flavors of crisp cucumbers, tangy feta, and sweet tomatoes combine to make a light, healthy dish. Traditionally, Greek salads also include kalamata olives, but I'm not their biggest fan so I left them out of this version, but for olive lovers, their brininess can add an extra kick to the salad. Serve alongside some orzo or grilled shrimp for a complete meal.
