Since the cucumbers are coming in like crazy I decided to make a fresh salad and wanted to do something different, I came across this yummy looking salad. Of course I didn’t have feta cheese on hand so I made a few revisions to fit what I had and I think it worked beautifully.
What I made?
Cucumber and Goat Cheese Salad
I wrote a post earlier this summer about an amazing farmer in Lenoir, NC who makes the most amazing goat cheese I have ever had. She has 1 in particular called Sunny Paris, the name alone peeked my interest. I do not know exactly what she puts in the crack laced cheese log, but it for sure has shallots, lemon zest, dill, mint, can you taste it?
Fresh & Sunny and PERFECTLY YUMMY!!
Sunny Paris Cucumber Salad
6 cucumbers (I used 3 varities), chopped & deseeded
8 oz of Sunny Paris goat cheese (can use plain with fresh spices added to it)
1/4 c good olive oil
2 T fresh lemon juice
1 T water
1 small sweet onion, diced fine
Peel, de-seed and chop cucumbers. Place in strainer, sprinkle with salt and allow to drain for apx 30 mins. Mix cheese, olive oil, lemon juice, water and spices in a bowl; add cucumbers & onions. Chill. ENJOY!!
