Blueberry, Cucumber and Feta Salad

This salad was served at my wedding.  I wanted something a little more unique that people could really enjoy and get excited about while still having a salad option and this was a bit hit!  This was definitely a favorite that day and the ones that followed as we finished off leftovers before leaving for our honeymoon.

Since all of our food was catered (minus the cake), I wanted to make my own version with a home-made vinaigrette so that I could bring back special memories from our wedding day throughout the summer.  Here goes nothing:

Ingredients:

  • 1 English cucumber, sliced into rounds then in half
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 3 oz feta
  • 1 Tbsp EVOO
  • 2 tsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp basil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Leaving vinegar to the side, toss ingredients together. Add vinegar and toss again.  Enjoy!

 

Note: I enjoy this as a salad for one as a full meal.  It could easily be divided to serve four as a small side salad or doubled or tripled to suit.
