Cucumbers With Feta, Mint and Sumac

Cucumbers With Feta, Mint and Sumac

Garden-grown summer cucumbers are ideal for this easy salad, but even hothouse cucumbers are vastly improved with this zesty treatment. The sumac powder can be found at Middle Eastern groceries or online spice emporiums. Sumac adds a pleasant sour flavor that lemon juice alone does not provide. To keep the cucumbers crisp, don’t dress them more than 30 minutes before serving.
