Delicious Dishes: Cucumber Tomato Salad

Many of us want to lighten up after holiday indulgences.  This salad is perfect for those who may be resolving to eat healthier, without sacrificing flavor.  This is a great starter or side dish; I've even been known to mix in some tuna and eat it as a main dish.  Let's get started!

Cut cucumber lengthwise, scoop out seeds, cut into strips, then dice.
Core and cut tomatoes into strips, then dice.
Combine diced cucumber, tomato, and feta.
For the dressing, whisk olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper, until it's mixed well (that's called an emulsion).  Mix the dressing into the cucumber, tomato, and feta.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Enjoy!
