This Greek Spiralized Cucumber Salad features cucumber noodles for a sassy spiralized salad that’s refreshing and delicious!
Yes, you. The one who impulsively bought a spiralizer during the height of their trendiness only to tuck it back into box and bury it in the back of your closet, never to be seen again.
No need to toss it on eBay, regift to your millennial cousin, or slap it on craigslist in hopes to be rid of the burden… It’s totally time you embraced this one trick pony of an appliance and make some gosh darn zoodles!
Annnnnnd cucumber noodles… carrot noodles… sweet potato noodles…. #alltheveggienoodles
They’re fun, fresh, and my absolute favorite way to break out of a salad rut.
Of course not everyone has a spiralzer, in which case all you have to do is break out your handy dandy veggie peeler and you’ll be in veggie noodle heaven before you know what hit ya!
What dressing should I use for this cucumber noodle salad?
This easy peasy mediterranean salad works with a bevy of delicious dressings. Use your favorite homemade dressing, snag the store bought stuff that makes your face happy, or try one of the tasty dressing recipes I’ve included in the recipe card below. I love it with both a flavorful and refreshing Greek dressing and a light lemon dressing.
I also LOVE topping this salad with micro greens. They’re a great compliment to the cucumber noodles and are chock full of nutrients too.

This Greek Spiralized Cucumber Salad features cucumber noodles for a sassy spiralized salad that's refreshing and delicious!
- 1 English cucumber
- 2 TBSP hummus - any flavor!
- 1/4 cup crumbled feta
- 1 cup chopped tomatoes (cherry, roma, grape, etc...)
- 1 cup fresh micro greens
- 1/4 cup sliced red onion, or to taste
- fresh lemon wedges
- pepperoncini peppers
- sliced olives
- fresh chopped parsley
- 1/4 cup lemon juice (approx 2 lemons)
- 1/4 cup quality olive oil
- 1 TBSP pure maple syrup (honey works too!)
- 1 tsp dijon mustard
- 1/2 tsp minced garlic
- 1/8-1/4 tsp sea salt
- 1/8 tsp black pepper
Choose your favorite dressing from above and combine ingredients in a mason jar. Pop on the lid, shake, and set aside.
Divide between two bowls (or serve in one large bowl) and top with tomatoes, feta, hummus, red onion, and all the extra veggies your heart desires.
Shake dressing again before serving and dive in!
Nutrition Facts below are estimated using an online recipe nutrition calculator. Estimate for salad only. Adjust as needed baed on choice of dressing and amount added and enjoy! Dressing is approx. 70-100 calories per tablespoon.
While you can pick up micro greens at your local farmer’s market or grocery store, feel free to do what I do and grow your own! Those babies are so easy to grow and basically shoot out of the ground in a matter of days!
Snag a shallow pot (the longer the better!) with some drainage holes, fill it with potting soil, and add an even layer of salad green or micro green blend seeds on top. Top with a little more soil (see package for measurements) and water using a spray bottle. Keep them watered daily and either outside in full sun or against a window that gets nice and sunny.
My favorite seeds to use for micro greens are leafy green salad mixes, kale, basil, parsley, arugula, and spinach.
