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!

How to Make Baguette with Feta Spread and Cucumbers

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.
