W64: Greek Cucumber Salad

I tried Cucumber Salad for the first time at a family gathering on Labor Day and instantly knew I needed to try this recipe out myself!  It's full of delicious veggies but with a Mediterranean flair.  What's not to love?

Dressing: 1/2 c. olive oil, 1/4 c. red wine vinegar, 1 1/2 tsp sugar,
1 clove garlic (minced), 1 sprig fresh dill (minced), 1 tsp dried oregano,
1/2 tsp garlic powder, dash of salt, pepper to taste

Whisk together in a small bowl.

Combine dressing with 1 lb. halved cherry tomatoes (used red & yellow for color),
1/2 c. pitted, drained & halved Kalamata olives, 1 c. goat cheese, 1 diced cucumber

Refrigerate for several hours before serving.

Serve over pasta for a complete meal!

It tastes better than it looks in this picture...
I added more goat cheese than the recipe actually calls for since I love it so much!
So it came out a little creamier than it's supposed to...but still delicious!

Coming up... Week 65: Natural Exfoliant
