Cucumber and Tomato Salad with Feta and Balsamic Glaze

We have been busy working hard here at Fleming Lane to bring you the prettiest pieces for your home and table. 

One topic that we love to discuss is FOOD! We love cooking, eating and just about anything that has to do with food. So, what do you say we talk about our first recipe?

This Cucumber and Tomato Salad recipe is a go-to in my Summer recipe box! My dad always makes this for us in the Summer and it just feels like home to me. I have adapted it a little bit and switched the balsamic vinegar to a balsamic glaze. You can use any good sweet balsamic. 

This recipe is easy and refreshing and perfect for those days that you are running to an afternoon cookout but don't want to spend all day in the kitchen or if you are looking for an easy vegetable dish that you can whip up quickly to bring out to the pool or backyard for your family!

I love cooking, but in the Summer, I like things that are quick and easy to throw together in a pinch! This recipe is super simple and you don't need to be exact. Feel free to add more or less of what you like! The most important part is just be sure to give it a good seasoning!

 

Cucumber and Tomato Salad

Ingredients

  • 1 Cucumber 
  • 2 Tomatoes 
  • 1 Cup Colby Jack Cheese or Cheddar
  • 1/2 Cup Feta Cheese
  • Olive Oil
  • Balsamic Glaze
  • Salt and Pepper 

*See notes below for additional details and suggestions.

Instructions

Roughly chop tomatoes, cucumbers and Colby Jack cheese into bite size pieces.

Toss together with hands or spoon. You can do this in your serving bowl or platter.

Crumble Feta on top.

Drizzle with olive oil annd balsamic glaze.

Season with salt and pepper to taste. 

Notes: You can adjust measurements to whatever ratio you prefer! I like to do equal amounts cumber, tomatoes and Colby Jack cheese with a good amount of Feta crumbled on top. Feel free to add more or less of anything. Heirloom and cherry, or grape, tomatoes make a great addition for variety or can be substituted all together. I prefer to use a mixture.
