I recently ate this easy Greek Summer Salad on our friends’ houseboat and knew I had to make it again the following week!
Greek Summer Salad Recipe
We recently went out on the boat to check out the weigh-ins at The Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament and ended up hanging out with our friends Joe and Sally on their houseboat.
I’m all about boat rides because this is what I get to see on the way home. I’m so blessed to live in such a beautiful place!
Joe brought me a bowl of his Summer Salad that had been marinating for a few hours… I fell in love with the combination of feta cheese, cucumbers, tomatoes and onions!
The only thing I did differently with making this salad is that I added sliced black olives. I could eat a whole large can of black olives as a snack. Since Joe’s salad had feta cheese in it, I thought it’d be awesome with them.
AND IT WAS.
This is another super-easy summertime salad that you’ll enjoy all throughout the summer months. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!Print
