Spiralized Mediterranean Cucumber Salad

Spiralized Mediterranean Cucumber Salad

Yields: 4 servings

Save time and spiralize crisp cucumber instead of chopping it for this easy, healthy vegetable side. Want to make it a meal? Just add grilled chicken, shrimp or canned chickpeas.
Ingredients

    • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
    • 2 tablespoons red-wine vinegar
    • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano, plus more for garnish
    • ¼ teaspoon salt
    • ¼ teaspoon pepper
    • 2 large cucumber
    • 1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
    • ½ cup thinly sliced red onion
    • ½ cup cubed feta cheese
    • ¼ cup sliced pitted Kalamata olives
Directions

  1. Whisk oil, vinegar, oregano, salt and pepper in a large bowl.
  2. Using a spiralizer, make cucumber spirals.  (If you don’t have a spiralizer you can cut the cucumber into bite sized chunks.)
  3. Add the cucumber noodles, tomatoes, onion, cheese and olives to the bowl and toss to coat with the dressing. Serve topped with more oregano, if desired.
