Feta Cheese Tomato and Cucumber Appetizer

Feta Cheese Tomato and Cucumber Appetizer

Ever since I tried this delicious and refreshing feta cheese tomato and cucumber appetizer at a friend’s house, I’ve been hooked. The combination of bread, cheese, cucumber and tomato is very traditional, but what makes this appetizer so unique is its dressing. You drizzle the feta cheese tomato and cucumber appetizer with a dressing made of extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar and dried mint (fresh won’t taste as good). The bread soaks up all this goodness and you get a minty, tangy and mildly sweet taste in every bite. This is what I call simplicity at its best!
