Make this Beautiful Healthy Salad with Cucumbers, Blueberries and Feta Cheese
Learn how to make this healthy salad that is loaded with nutrients – yet super-delicious!
You will love the delicious flavors in this healthy salad with cucumber, fresh blueberries and feta cheese. It all starts with a bed of fresh romaine lettuce and green leaf lettuce, cleaned, dried and chopped. Both of these lettuce choices will give you a healthy dose of Vitamin K and Vitamin A.
If possible, try and purchase organic blueberries. Toss your blueberries in a sink colander and spray lightly with your sink sprayer. Let the blueberries dry before adding to your salad.
Definitely try and buy organic cucumbers if you enjoy eating them unpeeled. If you peel your cucumbers, it’s a bit safer to go with the non-organic. If the price isn’t significantly different, always go with organic if possible.
Make this healthy salad loaded with nutrients from the lettuce, cucumbers and blueberries.
- 8 cups romaine lettuce and green leaf lettuce
- 1 large cucumber, peeled and chopped
- 1 pint fresh blueberries, cleaned and dried
- 1 cup feta cheese chunks
Wash the lettuce and let dry. Make sure the lettuce is dry before adding to a large bowl or platter. Toss lettuce with salt & pepper.
Mix half of the cucumbers and blueberries in with the salad.
Put the rest of the cucumbers and blueberries, along with the feta cheese on top of the salad.
If you buy regular cucumbers, you can easily remove the seeds by scraping gently with a spoon. Wash the cucumbers thoroughly before handling. Slice the cucumbers in half longways. Scrape a spoon down the center of the cucumber to remove the seeds.
We like to slice the cucumbers into smaller chunks and then lightly salt.
We love using a block of fresh feta cheese and then cutting it into small pieces as needed. You can also buy crumbled feta cheese that is a little cheaper in cost.
Salads are a delicious and healthy way to add more fruits and vegetables to your diet. Read more on how to make a basic tossed salad.
