Greek Salad

Greek Salad

Have you heard the phrase “Cool as a Cucumber‘? 

Not sure how this phrase came about but I can tell you that when I think of summer snack,I think of cucumbers. I think of train trips, bus stops and a man carrying basket full of cucumbers and ‘Kakdi“(‘Armenian Cucumber’) in hot Indian summer.On demand, it will be peeled, sliced and served with sprinkle of black salt  to you.

I love cucumbers. My papa always bought it during summer. It is an easy, quick snack. I like the crunch and coolness of the cucumbers. Fine Black salt, a condiment, goes very well with it.Try it sometime 🙂


I always look for a way to eat cucumbers. So what will be more perfect then Greek Salad?Greek Salad has tomatoes, onion, cucumbers tossed with feta and dressing. You can add lettuce to it 🙂

I used Pioneer Woman’s recipe for guideline.I made more dressing then i needed,so i can just add it when i need it for next batch.

I was bit hesitant to serve this salad to the family.Chunky pieces of tomatoes and cucumbers does not fare well in my home.No one complained,though i am an only fan 🙂

We looked up Greece in our globe and prayed over the country.We stamped our summer passport and added a prayer stick for Greece.
