Cucumber, Onion, Parsley Salad

1 large Diva Cucumber
1/4 red onion, finely diced (or more to taste)
1/2 cup chopped parsley
1/4 cup crumbled Feta cheese
2 T best quality extra virgin olive oil
1 T fresh lemon juice
fresh ground black pepper to taste


Cut cucumber into fourths lengthwise. Cut pieces into thinner strips and chop cucumbers into pieces less than 1/2 inch square.

Dice onion into small pieces. (If you prefer a milder onion flavor, soak the onions in cold water for about 10 minutes, then drain well and pat dry.) Pat Feta cheese dry with a paper towel, then crumble into pieces. Wash parsley and spin dry or dry with paper towels, then chop coarsely.

In large bowl, combine cucumbers, onions, and parsley. Whisk together olive oil and lemon juice and stir into vegetable mixture. Sprinkle feta cheese over and stir gently a few times. Season with fresh ground black pepper and serve immediately.
