Balsamic Cucumber Salad
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 15 min.
This is a WONDERFUL recipe, easy and delicious. Plus, I added olives, as another commenter suggested, along with fresh thyme to make it even better! :)
Simple refreshing salad, nice change without lettuce. I did add kalamata olives and made my own balsamic vinaigrette. So simple. Thank you Blair!
It was great and a definite keeper.
This is a wonderful light summer salad, and perfect to go along with any summer main dish. My husband and I very much enjoyed this and will be making this again and again. It would be perfect to bring to a potluck too.
Love this salad! It's quick and easy to prepare and oh so yummy. I make my own balsamic vinaigrette dressing very similar to the last reviewers recipe (using white balsamic vinegar).
I loved this salad!!! To make it a true Greek salad, I added pitted Kalamata olives. I used chopped green onions instead of red because I prefer them. The recipe had no vinaigrette recipe--my recipe is 1/4 c. extra virgin olive oil, 2T balsamic vinegar, 1 T honey, 1 t. dijon mustard, salt & pepper to taste. I actually doubled the vinaigrette recipe so I would have extra to use for the next batch or for a salad.
I peel most of the skin, cut lengthwise twice intoquarters, then 1/2 inch chunks. Much easier to gracefully eat than a slice. I also marinate in balsamic, a little water & fresh ground pepper for a day or two. Great for a healthy snack, too!
I loved this easy fresh salad! I did add salt and pepper to taste and left out the feta cheese. If you like feta it would be delicious in it.
Very healthy recipes looks good thank you for sharing
I make this often and use red onions.Many types of onions are sweet if you know how to pick them out.I look for flattened orbs for the most sweetness. : )
