Tomato Cucumber Feta Salad is fresh, flavorful, and SO delicious! This easy summer salad recipe comes together quickly. with just a handful of ingredients. It’s 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 recipe 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. 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!)
