Method:

No-Cook or Other

Ingredients

2 large
cucumbers, peeled
salt
2 Tbsp
salt

DRESSING

6 oz
feta
1/4 c
finely chopped scallion
2 Tbsp
lemon juice or 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1 tsp
olive oil
fresh ground black pepper

Directions Step-By-Step

1
If you want to reduce the salt content of the feta, cut it into chunks and soak in cold water for an hour.
2
Score the cucumbers with the tines of a fork, and cut them in half lengthwise. Remove the seeds - a grapefruit spoon or melon baller works well. Sprinkle the cucumbers with salt, and let them stand for about 1/2 hour.
3
Then rinse, pat dry, and slice the cucumbers into 1/2 inch chunks.
4
In a medium serving bowl, crush the feta with a fork and mix it with the scallions, lemon juice, oil, and pepper.
5
Combine the cucumber chunks with the cheese mixture.

Sprinkle the salad with the mint.
6
It can sit in the refrigerator before serving, but try not to hold it more than an hour or it will get watery.
