Last summer I had the opportunity to participate and contribute to Summer Fest, a fun cross blog event which celebrates peak harvest season. A couple of days ago Margaret Roach from Away to Garden gave her readers a heads up that Summer Fest is coming back this year.
Today’s theme is: Cukes and Zukes.
For said occasion I picked one of my favorite snacks made with Persian cucumbers. I came up with the idea for this recipe a few years back when I was on a no-carb diet. All I wanted was some Noon-o-Paneer, bread with feta cheese, but since I could not have any bread, I had to find a substitute. Sure enough Persian cucumbers saved the day and this combination soon became a favorite, especially in the summer time as it is so refreshing to eat.
All you need for this recipe is Persian cucumbers or English cucumbers, your favorite type of Feta Cheese, and walnuts. I would suggest soaking the walnuts overnight in water so that they soften up a bit. Assemble the three ingredients as seen above and you are good to go!
I think this combination can also go well as an appetizer. Fill up a platter with these next time you have a party, I am sure they will be a hit!
