Cucumber, Tomato & Feta Salad

Yesterday we had a reunion & I was to bring the salad & baked beans. I recently found this beautiful salad on Pinterest & decided to make it. I am so glad I did - it was a hit! At first I thought nobody was trying it until someone told me it was delicious & the other two at the table nodded in agreement. Next time I went into the kitchen, it was all gone! Great dish & so easy to make.
