Salads are a magical thing to me.

If you toss the right amount of flavor and vegetables into a salad you can come out with something so delicious that you forget how healthy it is.

That’s what happened when I made this greek cucumber salad!

Even though I’m a vegetarian and eat pretty healthy by most standards, I wouldn’t normally eat a ton of raw vegetables unless they were in a smoothie.

I don’t even really care for tomatoes most of the time and cucumber has always been a meh for me, but in this salad they suddenly become magically delicious!

I added chickpeas for extra protein and texture and loved the little bit of crunch that they added to each bite.

Feta cheese + tangy delicious lemon-y olive oil dressing and this salad is next level amazing!

Feta cheese in salads is so delicious and one of my favorite flavors!

This makes a great easy side dish, and would be perfect to bring to a potluck.

I had a big bowl for lunch today and was still full hours later, which surprised me!

My body must have really needed all of those nutrients.

I didn’t add any olives because I don’t like them, but if you do they would be a great addition!
