Cucumber Parsley Salad with Feta

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Cucumber Parsley Salad with Feta, perfect with anything grilled or spicy!
Cucumber Parsley Salad
This is a simple and tasty salad. The bonus is that it can be made year-round because English cucumbers and parsley are readily available. I think it is fair to say that parsley is not given a fair shake in the food world. It is sooo nutritious., plus the herby flavor is mild yet delicious. 

I have wondered from time to time if the reason folks don't consider parsley a serious ingredient is from seeing it year after year as a garnish on their dinner plate when eating out. That garnish has a purpose, parsley chewed after a meal, sweetens the breath.....but today we are making a wonderful salad with it!  

I hope you enjoy this salad as much as I do. It has a refreshing and cooling quality that goes great with anything spicy or grilled.

Cucumber Parsley Salad
by the seat of my pants

1 large English style cucumber
1 bunch parsley, washed, "dried" and chopped
1 small piece red onion equal to 1/4 c diced, or 2 scallions sliced thin
1/3 - 1/2 c crumbled feta cheese
2 T lemon juice
3 T olive oil
garlic salt and pepper to taste

Chop the parsley, I use a food processor, but use the method you prefer!

Dice the red onion and soak in ice water until the ice cube melts, to soften the flavor. Drain and pat dry.

Wash and remove peel in a zebra stripe pattern.
Cut lengthwise into quarters, then slice 3/4 inch thick.

  1. I can't wait to try your salad. I sounds really delicious.

  2. Thanks, it is best the same day made, as so many salads are. But the next day add a little squirt of lemon juice to brighten the flavor.

  3. I love parsley and frequently add it to all my salads. Your recipe looks delicious.

    1. Thank you, I put parsley in the same category as prunes, delicious and overlooked by most folks, which is too bad, it is a wonderful source of vitamins A and C.
