Think fast! What lunch can you whip up in about 5 minutes with cucumber, tomato, and feta cheese??
Before I get to that, I have to tell you that I am sick of cucumbers by now. Well, I'm sick of finding uses for them. I've made pickles, and I've shredded up a bunch for a massive serving of tzatziki dip... And our garden is showing no signs of stopping.
So today, I thought of a tasty light lunch. I didn't have any Kalamata Olives, but if I had, I would have added them to the mix...
Greek Salad Sandwich
1 cucumber, seeded and diced
2 Roma tomatoes, diced
about 1 oz feta cheese
about 1/4 cup Balsamic vinegar
a few leaves of fresh basil, or 2 tsp dried basil
salt to taste
Mix diced vegetables, crumbled cheese, and basil. In a small skillet, reduce balsamic vinegar to a runny syrup. Let cool slightly and mix with veggie mix. Spoon over sandwich roll and top with spinach or arugula, or both!
Too, you can skip the roll, and just make it a salad on the spinach and arugula.
