Easy Greek Salad

Simple is better with this salad. If you can find really good tomatoes and cucumbers, this is the salad to make. I always get tied up in trying to be overly creative with food, and this salad shows that you can have an amazing side dish with no effort. I love the contrast of colors from all the ingredients and it is a way to bring some fresh yummy summertime flavor to your table during the winter months. This would also be good with fish, like halibut, or chicken if you wanted to make it into a meal.

Easy Greek Salad

2 Cucumbers, peeled and cut into ¼ inch thick slices
6 Roma Tomatoes, cut into large cubes
Handful Baby Spinach, cleaned and stems removed
8 Ounces Feta Cheese
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Balsamic Vinegar
Salt and Pepper

Divide into 6 bowls cucumbers, tomatoes and spinach, stir to combine. Crumble feta cheese over the top, drizzle olive oil and balsamic vinegar of the veggies and top with salt and fresh ground pepper. I used a yummy coarse black volcanic salt for this to add a little contrast.
