Easy Cucumber Salad

Amazingly refreshing Cucumber Salad! Cold and crisp cucumbers and vibrantly flavoured red onion slices are tossed with a bright, fresh herb vinaigrette. It’s the perfect easy side to all your favourite summer foods!

Cucumbers are a staple!  They are great for snacking, they make the best salads, and they’re a delicious topping for wraps and sandwiches.

Ingredients 

2-4  cucumbers (depending on size), thinly sliced
1 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
3 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp honey
1 1/2 Tbsp finely minced fresh parsley
1 tsp minced fresh garlic
1/4 red onion sliced

Instructions

Place sliced cucumbers in a colander. Sprinkle with salt and toss to evenly coat, while separating slices so salt coats all cucumbers. Transfer colander to refrigerator set over a plate to allow cucumbers to drain 30 - 60 minutes.

Mean while whisk apple cider vinegar, olive oil, honey, parsley, pepper, and fresh garlic.

Combine cucumbers, red onion and dressing- toss well!

This salad is inspired by the flavours of Thailand and the balance of hot and sour with salty and sweet. Traditionally, this dish would be paired with fish, but it works well with most types of seafood. Definitely a fresh recipe to bring out this summer.
