Lemon Feta Cucumber Salad

This year our garden has not done as well as in the past.  I think the weather has been too hot, even though my husband has been faithfully watering and trying to keep it going.  The one thing that is growing though is the cucumbers.  We're glad because we love to make my Cucumber Cooler recipe.  Last Sunday I was just too busy to make it, so I tried to make something quick.  My husband loves feta cheese and I have seen recipes with feta and cucumbers together.  I added some fresh lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper and had a delicious cucumber salad.  I call it "Lemon Feta Cucumber Salad".  My husband loved it!

Lemon Feta Cucumber Salad
1 large cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced
(When I peeled it, I left a little green skin on it.  Then I took a fork and ran the prongs up and down the cucumber to make it look pretty and have a little color to it before I sliced it.)

2 - 3 teaspoons olive oil
juice from 1/2 of a lemon (about 1 - 2 Tablespoons)
1/4 cup feta cheese
Salt and pepper to taste

Put cucumber slices in a small bowl.  Add lemon juice and olive oil.  Mix together.  Sprinkle with feta cheese and mix again.  Add salt and pepper to taste.

Cucumbers grow so fast and they will get too big if you don't check on them often.  Every day I remind my husband to pick the cucumbers and every day he tells me he picked them all.  I think he forgot this one!
McKinley thought Papa had planted some watermelons.
