Black Bean, Cucumber and Feta Salad

I'm still squeezing out as many fresh salads as I can because although I love cooler weather, the produce selection goes down dramatically. This salad makes the best of the last of the corn around KY.  The cucumbers have gone out of season, but this was still delicious!

  1. I love the pairings here. I'm going to miss summer too. Thanks for sharing with NCR. The roundup is a bit late this month but it's coming soon.
