Happy Farmer’s Market Day! – Glenyce’s Greek Salad

Saturday is farmer’s market day, and my new routine is to pop by after my aerobics class in the morning. I really appreciate the fresh grown fruits and vegetables, and this time of year cucumbers and tomatoes just can’t be beat. So this week I headed to the market to find ingredients for a Greek Salad.

I’m calling this Glenyce’s Greek Salad because my Mom has been telling me what a great salad this is all week and she shared with me the ingredients that need to go in it. Her name is Glenyce. 🙂 She didn’t give me quantities because she says it depends on what you like. But here’s how I made mine. It was delish!

Thanks to Christopher Farms in Lathrop, MO for growing the delicious cherry tomatoes and cucumbers.

Here’s what you’ll need:
2 cups diced cucumber
2 cups diced tomatoes
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
1/2 cup pitted black olives
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
Handful of fresh chopped basil

1/4 cup olive oil
3 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon
Sprinkle dried oregano

Place cucumber, tomatoes, red onion, olives, feta cheese and basil in a large bowl.

In small container mix together salad dressing ingredients and toss together with salad ingredients according to taste. This should be more dressing than you need.

And voila! A light healthy meal for a hot summer day! 🙂
