Tomato Cucumber Salad with Olives and Feta!

It is a great feeling when the food you are eating comes right from your garden.   This Tomato Cucumber Salad came right from the backyard.  

Tomato Cucumber Salad with Olives and Feta cheese

This year I grew my own cucumbers, tomatoes and basil knowing that I would be making this salad.  This is a perfect quick and easy side dish to make for summer dinners.

Of course I love that I can go outside a pull the items out of my garden and know they are fresh and grown in organic soil without chemicals.   I did not grow the green onions, but I might consider that for next year.  I also grew some squash, peppers and zucchini.  

How does your zucchini grow?

This was a picture I shared on Instagam of my zucchini that was growing in the garden.  Look at the size of those.  If you are not following my on Instagram, follow me, (<— click here to follow)this is the kind of pictures you will see me posting, random fun things!

 I like regular black olives in my salad, you can use any type of olive or omit them all together.  I like this recipe because you can substitute or remove the ingredient that you choose.  

Cucumber Tomato Salad

Do you have a garden or shop from a local farmers market?  I love summer for this reason alone, local fresh veggies!

  1. Totally making this. We enjoy all kinds of salads, and this one looks delish. Only thing is that mine will be produce from the grocery store. I need to try my hand at gardening next year.
