Egyptian Feta Cucumber Salad
So, let’s get to this Egyptian Feta Cucumber Salad. Originally I posted it in 2014. I had just got a copy of Pinch of Yum’s Photography eBook and was learning how to really take photos and styling.
I sort of like the photo of this cucumber-feta salad. I surprised myself that I thought I did a decent job with the styling. However, you can not tell what is on that plate.
I took the photo of this cucumber salad with feta on the balcony of my old apartment. I do miss that balcony and that patio furniture.
I had a patient, who is Egyptian, and knows I love to cook. He gave me this Egyptian Feta Cucumber Salad recipe. He also gave me the Gebna Makleyah Egyptian Oven Baked Cheese recipe as well.
He is one of my favorite patients. So him giving me this Egyptian salad is why he is one of my favorite patients.

For This Recipe You Will Need
I love salads, but I do get tired of the green leafy ones. So changing it up to this cucumber-feta salad is a great change. After all, change is good, right?
- 2 cucumbers
- 1/4 cup scallions (thinly sliced)
- 4 oz feta cheese
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon fresh chopped mint
- salt and pepper to taste
- Score the cucumber with a fork and then slice it. What this does, it makes the cucumber pretty, but also helps with getting the moisture out the cucumber when we salt it. Sprinkle a little salt on them and let sit for about an hour.
- Meanwhile, put the feta in a bowl with the scallions and with a fork, you want to mash the feta to break into smaller pieces and also to blend it with the scallions. Then mix in the lemon and oil, set it aside.
- After an hour that the cucumbers have set, blot them with a paper towel to remove the moisture. Then cut it up into smaller pieces. Add them to the feta mixture, along with the chopped mint, season with a little pepper and salt if you want. Personally I think it has enough salt. Mix it all well.
- Put a little in a dish and simply ENJOY!
