Notes
  • Serve this dish with a side of leafy greens or your favorite side dish such as Balsamic Glazed Brussels Sprouts or Baked Spaghetti Squash for a more filling meal!
  • Go easy on the salt when seasoning the toppings as the feta and olives can be quite salty already.
  • English cucumber is preferred for this recipe.
