Quick question. How many hours of Olympic competition did you watch this weekend? I definitely put in a few solid hours each day. I love watching swimming and gymnastics, but cycling, fencing, volleyball, and tennis were great too! And I felt slightly guilty about it because it was gorgeous outside; but the summer Olympics only happen once every four years and I just couldn’t miss it!

Don’t worry. I still got in my fair share of time in the sun (with sunscreen, of course) – long walks on both Saturday and Sunday, shopping at the farmers market, and hitting balls at the driving range.

I’m keeping this Greek theme going for one more day. Last week I shared with you my homemade Greek yogurt tzatziki sauce and Ottolenghi’s turkey zucchini meatballs in gyro form.

And if you are a slightly intuitive person, you most likely picked up on the fact that I like Greek food. In fact, I love all Mediterranean food. One of my favorite things about this cuisine is all the veggies, and today I made you a Greek salad with spiralized cucumber to highlight all of that veggie goodness.

I absolutely love my spiralizer. Do you have one? I toyed with the idea for a while because I don’t like having very many gadgets in the kitchen… and if I do add another to my collection, it needs to:

  1. Serve more than one purpose. The spiralizer has three different blades and there are countless ways to use it!
  2. Be user friendly. The spiralizer couldn’t be easier to use; all you have to do is swap the blades in and out, insert your veggie or fruit, and turn the crank! Instant noodles.
  3. Be easy to clean. The spiralizer is completely plastic, except for the blades; and the whole thing can go right into your dishwasher.

Look at those gorgeous cucumber noodles! But don’t worry if you don’t have a spiralizer; you can easily just chop up your cucumber and toss it in the salad like the rest of the vegetables!

This salad has all the vegetables you could ever want – cucumber, yellow, orange, and green bell peppers, red onion, and tomatoes. And I added kalamata olives and feta cheese because this is a Greek salad after all.

    Ohhh nice! I love my spiralizer…this recipe looks super fresh and delish!

    *Olympic side note: I’ve been watching SO much of it. Love every second. My H wanted to change the channel one day to baseball and I’m all like “What the heck! This is on once every 4 years for like 2 weeks, you can watch baseball pretty much 8 months out of the year” I obviously won that one 😉

      Thanks Myra – ME TOO!

      He’s crazy! Luckily, Pat has been super into the Olympics too… he keeps wanting to watch Stranger Things and then I have to remind him that Katie Ledecky is swimming tonight and he immediately changes his mind 🙂 Can’t wait to keep watching!
