Make the most of cucumber season with this salad. It’s the simplest combination of refreshing cool cukes and salty feta mixed with herbs and a straightforward dressing. It’s perfect as a picnic side or wrapped up in a pita for lunch. To remove the seeds from the cucumbers, take a spoon and carve them out, just like removing seeds from a pumpkin. If your cucumbers are tiny and don’t have many seeds, you can skip this step.
