This Tomato, Cucumber & Feta Salad is fresh, flavorful, and SO delicious! It comes together quickly with just a handful of ingredients and is one of our favorite go-to salads for summer!
I was talking with a friend the other day about the constant conundrum when eating out: do you play it safe and order something you know you’ll LOVE, or do you go the adventurous route and risk being disappointed? Decisions, decisions. The struggle is real!
I always love the idea of being adventurous….of never ordering the same thing twice….of throwing caution to the wind. Especially as a food blogger! Just think of how much inspiration I could glean if I was a no holds barred kind of restaurant-goer. The world would be my oyster.
But alas, I’m much more likely to go the other route. The safe route. The boring route. Since I eat out so rarely, I find myself craving my go-to menu options in between visits. Would you have me deny my taste buds the deliciousness they’ve been longing for?? Just to see if I might like something else as much? I didn’t think so.
See, the truth about me is that I’m a go-to kind of gal. I have my go-to meals and my go-to outfits and even my go-to emojis. And as a family, we have our go-to restaurants and our go-to games and our go-to vacation spots….(which, incidentally, always seem to involve a waterpark……) And this Tomato, Cucumber & Feta Salad? Well, it’s our go-to salad for summer!
You really can’t beat it – it’s made with just 4 main ingredients and packs SO much flavor! Best of all, it couldn’t be easier to make. This Tomato, Cucumber & Feta Salad is perfect for last minute cookouts, potlucks, or dinners with family and friends. I love that it’s made with such fresh ingredients….and the homemade vinaigrette? It’s to die for!
And even though it’s my go-to, it’s anything but boring. No, this Tomato, Cucumber & Feta Salad is as interesting as salads get….and always a crowd favorite! So what about you? What are some of your favorite go-to’s (recipe or otherwise?) Or are you one of those adventurous types? (Don’t worry….we can still be friends!)
