My father in law and I both really liked this, my kids (2 & 5) both ate it up no problem, my husband wasn't a fan.... ignore him, this is great! As long as you like mint.

The flavor of this was good, but was far too oily for such a fresh dish. Next time I would half the dressing and/or add it to a couple good handfuls of spring greens for a more traditional salad.

This was a very refreshing dish, but I had to take out some of the oil-lemon dressing. It was a bit much. And I actually ended up using three cucumbers instead of just one.

This was a very refreshing little salad. I would cut back the dressing by about a half in the future as it seemed a bit oily for us, or perhaps I'll just add a big handful of spinach to lighten it up. I ended up drizzling the leftover dressing and some of the mint over kefir (Lebni) soft cheese, sprinkled with red pepper flakes and served with pita bread. That was really nice as well. Thank you for sharing!

I decided to make a Greek Pastitsio as posted by Truebrit , and this recipe was posted a couple of times on her reviews, so my husband and I made this to go along with it. It has quite a traditional greek taste to it, and we loved it so much that we finished the whole thing off! We will definitely be making this a lot. Thanks!!

We really enjoyed the flavor of this. We felt there was way too much feta in comparison to the cucumber. Next time I would cut the cheese in half.....and we love feta.

This is a great dish. To make it seem more of a salad, I mix it with torm Boston lettuce leaves, or baby lettuce leaves.

This is a very attractive side salad dish. I used an English cucumber to minimize the water and seeds which worked very well.

Very nice and refreshing. I loved the combination of the feta, cucumbers and mint. A very nice side dish - my guests loved it too!

YES! Light. Crisp (despite the oily dressing, which actually was good, though I didn't use all of it. Maybe 3/4th of it). Was a HIT with the guests, one of which refused to give it to anyone else at the table and took home the final 4 pieces of cucumber he loved it so much. Great palate cleanser. Easy straight forward ingredients. Full flavor. Wonderful!
