Cucumber Tomato and Feta Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette
Salads are my go to lazy girl side. They require minimum effort and absolutely no cooking. It doesn’t get much better than that in my book, and salads are good for you. Salads also go with practically everything. My husband is a big fan of salads in general, he’s one of those people who has to have a meal anchored by vegetables or he doesn’t feel like he has gotten a complete meal. I’m like that too. When we traveled to Puerto Rico several years ago, we were both impressed with the food: steak, chicken, rice and beans, peppers, plantains. However, the food was always missing that anchor of vegetables, which we are both accustom to. We always asked if there was a vegetable dish that we could order to round out our meal. We never found a vegetable dish, but they always had a basic salad.
