This low-carb Mediterranean-style cucumber salad is the perfect side dish for summer! Light, fresh, and full of flavor, it is quick and easy to prepare. Serve it at your next family get-together, potluck, or barbecue.
The temps have been heating up here in Colorado, so I’ve been avoiding using my oven as much as possible. My husband has been grilling just about every night, which has been awesome. Our house stays cool and I get a break from cooking!
I’m not completely off the hook, however. While my husband takes care of grilling the meat, I usually whip up a simple side dish. My go-to is a fresh garden salad, but lately, I’ve been switching it up with this Mediterranean-style cucumber salad.
The combination of cucumber, tomato, red onion, olives, parsley, and feta cheese mixed with a homemade greek dressing is delicious and refreshing, especially on a hot summer day. It’s gluten-free, low-carb, keto-friendly, and kid-approved!
The best part is this cucumber salad is simple and inexpensive to make, especially when you shop for the ingredients with the Ibotta app, my favorite app for saving money on groceries!
