Farmer's Market Salad

I found a local farmer's market open every Sunday just around the corner of my new city! Can you believe I was able to get the basket of 5 herbs for $15. I was so happy because I had to leave behind my herb garden in the move and I was missing it dearly. Plus, check out the tub of fresh feta... and yes, girls it tastes as good as it sounds. I could eat the whole tub with my hands if nobody was looking! But I did not do that (Adam was watching) So I made this yummy salad instead...
Cucumber, Tomato, and Feta Salad
2 handfuls of cherry tomatoes
2 cucumbers
1/4 of a red onion
As much feta as you like
olive oil
fresh basil
I used a covered container to mix and store the salad. Slice tomatoes in half, slice and quarter cucumbers, thinly slice the red onion, and add to the container. Drop in your feta, drizzle on the EVOO, and chop and sprinkle with the basil. Give it a good shake and stick it in the fridge for 30 min or an hour.
This is such a yummy summer treat. I am currently trying the low- carb life style and... are you ready... I like it! I don't miss the pasta or bread... PLUS I have lost about 15 pounds in four weeks!

Let's go make something,
