Cherry Cucumber and Feta Salad

Cherry Cucumber and Feta Salad

Any Salad Lovers here? Well, I have been consuming salads for one meal atleast 3 times a week since some time now and it has shown a good effect on my skin and weight loss. On the topic of weight, our diet actually went for a toss during and post the shifting process at home. We ate takeouts, ordered food in and what not as we had no other option for a few days until the kitchen was functional enough to cook basic stuff.

Result – My skin gave up in the first 2 days as I have a pretty sensitive skin which gets affected with the slightest change with the weather, my diet or water intake.

Weight – I did not dare to step on the weighing scale and won’t do that for another 15 days or so.

To get back on track and make the most of seasonal produce and include a lot of fruits and veggies in our diet and also show off a bit of that feta cheese that husband got from France during his work trip last month, I had to make this salad.

The quintessential favourite is the watermelon feta salad but I love feta with pears and cherries too. The salty cheese pairs very well with the sweet and slightly tangy fruits.

Since Cherries are in season, I bought a big batch to snack on during the day and I ended up making the salad more than twice the same week as both of us loved it.
