Cucumber & Feta Salad

We've had an interesting start to Spring with a little over 12" of snow dropped on us. Truth be told that was not the kind of spring cleaning I was planning on doing! I'm excited for warmer weather and the produce our kitchen garden will hopefully gift us. This easy spring salad has a crisp, clean taste to get our palettes ready for lighter spring fare. The Orange Flower Water adds a light flowery flavor to crisp cucumbers and tart bright onions.

Here's my recipe:

  1. I love it, the lightness and freshness of this cucumber salad 'wows' me. Admire how papery thin you have sliced those cucumber too. Thank you so much for sharing with #EatYourGreens, most appreciated. And I hope the weather improves for you too, we in the UK are bracing ourselves for more wintry weather as a cold spell is coming from the Arctic.

    1. Thanks Shaheen been practicing my skills! :) I hope the weather improves for us both, can't wait to get back into the garden!
