Cucumber With Feta Cheese Dressing

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Syrinx

According to David Scott's "Middle Eastern Vegetarian Cookery", this easy salad is from Egypt, and is often served with the bean salad, "ful medames". I love it - it is fresh and summery, and delicious on a hot day. Feel free to reduce, or even omit, the onion if you don't like to eat it raw - the recipe still works well without it. Posted in the hope of joining the North African and Middle Eastern Tag game :-)

This was good for DH and I. I used English cucumber, some red onion, a salad mix of baby greens, goat feta cheese and the rest.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place a few lettuce leaves (shredded) on each of four side plates.
  2. Slice the cucumber and onion very, very thinly, and divide the slices between the four plates, arranging them neatly on top of the lettuce.
  3. Chop the cheese very finely, and mix well with the olive oil, the juice of a lemon, the oregano and some freshly ground black pepper.
  4. Pour the dressing over the cucumber and onion on each plate, and serve.
