Found this recipe in an old recipe magazine and thought I would give it a try as we have so many nice cucumbers from the garden right now. It was delish and we had it for lunch 2 days in a row. Love the salty from the Feta spread and the crunch of the cucumbers. Very refreshing!

Ingredients

1/2
baguette
6 tsp
extra-virgine olive oil, divided
3 oz
feta cheese
1/2 tsp
fresh lemon juice
coarse salt and ground pepper
1 small
english cucumber, thinly sliced crosswise

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven or toaster oven to 450 degrees. Split baguette lengthwise and lightly brush cut sides with 2 teaspoons olive oil. Bake until golden around edges, 5 minutes.
2
In a small bowl, mash together feta, 4 teaspoons olive oil, and lemon juice with a fork. Season with salt and pepper--you may not need the salt if your feta is very salty.
3
Spread feta mixture evenly over toasted baguette and top with cucumber. Season with salt, pepper, lemon juice and a drizzle of olive oil.
4
Cut into pieces to serve. I happen to have a bottle of Lucero crushed Meyer Lemon Olive Oil and that worked perfect for my drizzle.
