Greek Cucumber Salad

My garden is overflowing with cucumbers right now and I’m looking for new recipes to use them up. I love cucumbers and this salad was so refreshing especially with this heat wave we’re stuck in. I made it for dinner one night with grilled chicken and it was so good. Madeline ate three bowls of it! It would be great for a picnic too. You could prep all the ingredients and then mix it up right before your ready to eat.
