1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tbsp Red-wine vinegar
2 tbsp Extra-virgin olive oil
1 pint Cherry tomatoes (quartered or halved)
2 Baby cucumbers (peeled and cut crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices)
1/3 cup Pitted Kalamata olives (some halved and some quartered)
1 1/2 oz Feta cheese (crumbled about 1/3 cup)

Whisk together mustard and vinegar in a small bowl. Add oil in a slow, steady stream, whisking constantly until emulsified. Season with salt and pepper.

Toss vegetables and olives in a medium bowl, and toss with vinaigrette. Season with salt and pepper.

Divide salad among 12 three-ounce paper nut cups. Top each with some feta, and serve immediately.

Note: If you can't find baby cucumbers, cut English cucumbers small enough to fit in the cups.
