Oh My! I can not believe how many amazing ideas I’m getting from the The First Fabulous Friday Feta Giveaway! Just reading through them is SO inspiring!
I combined a few of the comments to make a light tasty salad this morning. Coming off a weekend of insane fast food indulging this was the perfect light, tasty meal I needed. I love how 6 ingredients can pack so much satisfying flavor. And I absolutely adore the combo of balsamic, feta and basil!
- 1 slice of red onion chopped (or more to taste)
- About 1/3 a pint of grape tomatoes halved (totaling 1/2 cup)
- About 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves loosely chopped
- 1 cup cut cucumber
- 1 oz crumbled feta cheese (I used the black peppercorn)
- 1 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
Cut your red onion. I only used a small slice as I’m not the biggest raw onion fan but I do like the flavor it adds.
Halve the tomatoes
Loosely chop the basil to release some flavor.
Cut cucumber in quarter inch slices and then in half and half again. Once cut I used a cup worth of the quartered cukes.
Place all ingredients in a large bowl.
Let sit for a few minute to allow the flavors to combine and then transfer the salad to a smaller bowl and enjoy!
