Say hello to your new favorite, refreshing salad – Cucumber, Dill, Feta and Pistachio Salad! Crisp cucumbers, fresh dill, salty feta and crunch pistachios are the perfect combination of flavors. You’ll be making this all summer long!
Time for a Colorado weather update, because it’s spring and you never know what the heck is going to happen. Up until now spring has been pretty enjoyable. Mostly warm and sunny days, I’ve been wearing shorts a lot, I really can’t complain…until now.
Monday was our last 70 degree, sunny day for about a week. The temperatures going down into the 50’s is bad enough, along with the chance of rain the next 4 out of 7 days, but it’s the freaking snow predicted for Saturday that has my panties in a knot!
When the snow comes this late in the season it’s such a bummer. I’m ready to start my vegetable garden, grill, eat dinner on our deck and spend the weekends outside, not turn on the fireplace and put my winter coat on when I go outside. The only shoveling I want to be doing this close to May is turning the dirt in my garden, not removing the snow from the driveway. I’m hoping the weather where you live is much nicer this weekend, if not feel free to vent and leave me a comment.
So while I’m glaring outside at the snow this weekend, I’ll think back a couple weekends to the warm weather, the grilling and this simple, but amazing Cucumber, Dill, Feta and Pistachio Salad that I made.
The salad was inspired by one that I saw in my Cooking Light magazine, but quickly turned into a Danae original once I realized I’d have to go to the grocery store if I made it the way the magazine instructed. Luckily, my version turned out so good that I had to share it with you guys.
This Cucumber, Dill, Feta and Pistachio is so fresh, crisp and crunchy and one you can feel good about eating. It will be perfect for sharing at all the summer barbecues and picnics! Today you can find the recipe over on Spoonful of Flavor. Head on over and grab the recipe, enjoy!
I love pistachios in salads, and I love that you added dill too! I can’t wait to try making this for my family the next time I go grocery shopping. Sounds delicious.
Thanks Billy! It really is a wonderful combination of flavors and a nice change from all the heavy dishes this time of year.
Best Salad! My 2 young daughters and I gobbled this up poolside today! sooo good. Our new favorite! Thank you!
Thanks Pam! I’m glad you and your girls enjoyed it and it sounds like you all had a fun day!
Would rate this a 12 out of a scale of five!!! Amazing flavor blending and I was asked by seven neighbors to make this the next time we have our neighborhood BBQ and more than double(triple and then some) it (the kids scooped it up before most of the adults could get to it…lesson learned)…Thank you, thank you, and so looking forward to seeing more recipes and running!!
You are too kind Judi and I’m glad the salad was a hit! I’ve already made it several more times and love more and more every time I do.

So beautiful and refreshing! I forgot how much I love dill, especially in summer salads! I’ll have to get on this ASAP. Thanks for the recipe! :)
