Mediterranean Appetizer with fresh cucumbers, tomatoes, olives & feta cheese
When I was given the recipe it was described as a tomato and cucumber with feta appetizer. If you love fresh tomatoes and cucumbers, then this Dip is for you. I started calling it a Mediterranean Dip because of the flavor. The fresh tomato and cucumber flavors in the fall are amazing. The Mediterranian part comes with the olives and feta! If you loved my Greek Dip, you will love this one too! This dip is easier and healthier.
This is a favorite appetizer from a neighborhood I used to live in. It’s often just known as Magaly’s appetizer. It just tasted so fresh and flavorful. Since it’s cucumber and tomato time now, I figured now is a good time to make and share this recipe. A litte prep. hint. If you are in a hurry and aren’t too concerned about the ingredients looking perfect, use your food processor! Just don’t prossess the ingredients too fine.
Ingredients for Mediterranean Dip
2 roma tomatoes
1 large seedless cucumber
1/2 small red onion
2/3 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/2 cup chopped olive (I used Kalamata)
2 tsp fresh dill (dry dill weed is ok)
drizzle of olive oil
Directions for Mediterranean Dip:
Chop everything up in similar sized fine pieces.
Put everything together in a bowl.
Squeeze half a lime and drizzle some olive oil on your ingredients.
Serve with thinly sliced baguette slices. But, don’t put the tomato & cucumber mixture on the bread ahead of time. It kind of makes your baguette go soggy. Guess how I know? Also, it makes it much easier on you if your guests help themselves.
Trust me! This recipe is easy and really good. The bonus is the main ingredients are plentiful and fresh now. Try it. In spite of being super healthy, you’ll be amazed at how much you’ll like it.
