Another great block-party recipe

Top Review by COOKGIRl

We loved this and it was so easy to make. I added a little fresh minced basil leaves and instead of feta I used 1/4 cup myzithra because I was making another salad with feta and didn't want overkill. (Although I did cut the recipe in half.) I chose to use a pickling cucumber for standard cucumbers because pickling cukes are so crisp. The lemon zest was a nice touch and the use of shallot for a stronger onion, such as red onion, was a nice change of pace. Thanks for sharing. cg
