Directions

Slice cucumbers as thinly as you can. A mandolin or vegetable slicer will make quick work of it. Toss together the cucumbers and a large pinch of salt in a mesh strainer set over a bowl. Combine the feta, oregano, garlic and shallots in a separate bowl. Add the lemon juice and zest and whisk in the olive oil.

Drain off and discard any water that has released from the cucumbers. Toss together the cucumbers and the dressing. Serve.

    Great salad! I used feta with herbs, omitted the oregano, and added thinly sliced red onion. Loved it and will be making this again and again.

    This is a great salad and easy to prepare. I used peeled, seeded regular cucumbers because I like them better than english cucumbers. Everything else the same.

    Loved this salad. A different take to the traditional marinated cucumber and onion salad. Very fresh and light. A big hit in my last dinner party.
