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!
