Tomato cucumber salad with vegan feta

This crisp, refreshing salad is filled with the summer's best. Slices of cucumbers, onions, and tomatoes intertwine with an herbed lemon dressing. It's finished with crumbles of vegan feta. It's a great side dish with corn on the cob or a veggie burger, hot off the grill.
Makes 4 small servings or 2 generous servings.

Notes

If you don't have Persian cucumbers, then you can replace the 2 Persian cucumbers with 1 English cucumber instead.
If you have a Microplane Zester, I recommend using that for the garlic. It helps the garlic to be almost paste-like in its consistency, which is easy to spread evenly throughout the salad. It also means there won't be any big clumps of raw garlic. Otherwise, be sure to mince it as small as possible.
If you want to make this salad ahead of time, store the dressing & almond feta separate from the vegetables. Cucumbers and tomatoes get watery after being chopped. So drain them with a sieve when you're ready to use them. Then add the vegan feta, and toss with dressing.
For best results, I recommend using my vegan feta cheese recipe for the cheese aspect. However, if you need a shortcut, there are some good vegan feta cheeses on the market like Violife, Trader Joe's, and Herbivorous Butcher. Or you can replace the cheese with diced avocado.
