Greek Cucumber Salad – This quick and easy Greek Cucumber Salad is the perfect light and fresh side dish! Full of cucumbers, tomato, onions, olives, cheese, and a tangy lemon dressing!
Guys. Give me ALL the Greek Cucumber Salad!
I know, I know, I’m a “comfort food” kind of lady.
BUT, this salad is just killing it for me right now. It’s so hot this summer it’s almost difficult to even think about eating sometimes.
That’s where this salad has saved my life. I have it for lunch on a constant basis (and sometimes for dinner) and I haven’t gotten tired of it.
Just a random FYI – it’s really good with tuna or grilled chicken thrown in for protein as a mail meal!

I’ve done a couple of other salads this summer too that are great for potlucks.
Those keep me nice and cool as well and the Italian salad has also happened for lunch more than once!
What I adore about this Greek salad is that it’s quick, chopping the veggies is easy, no boiling of pasta here, and the dressing comes together in about a minute.
It is light and refreshing with all those in season veggies, but it still keeps me full!
I think the reason this salad is so satisfying is all of the flavors that are packed into it!
I love cucumbers, and I love the skin, but you can peel yours if that’s yo thang.
Juicy tomatoes and sweet red onions are always perfect together.
Then that salty, tangy, goodness of kalamata olives and feta cheese!
The dressing is simple as well, lemon juice, olive oil, and a few seasonings.
Don’t let the simplicity fool you, you will be addicted to this flavor combination!
