Cucumber Tomato Salad

Hi there and happy Memorial Day to my cyber friends. I sure hope everyone had a great weekend full of fun, family, and of We hosted a little shin dig at our place for my husband's sweet family and introduced them into the wonderful world of gluten free eats. The fun thing about this salad is it's easy, simple ingredients, and naturally gluten free. With just a few simple items, you can have a tasty and fresh salad that goes wonderfully with your summer time BBQ's.

To create this salad, mix together 1/4 cup olive oil, 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon oregano, and 1/4 heaping teaspoon of salt. Then peel and chop 3 large cucumbers. Dice up 3-4 roma tomatoes, then half 1 cups worth of olives, and measure about 1 cup feta cheese. Toss ingredients together in a large salad bowl then TADA! Your done :) That's it. Told you it was easy peasy :) Now if you wanted, you CAN throw in 1 1/2 cup cooked noodles. Me myself, I think this salad is tasty just the way it is without adding the expensive GF noodles.

Anyway, enjoy and happy Monday to y'all!
