Between our veggie CSA and our own garden we have lots of cucumbers! We've been enjoying blueberry cucumber smoothies, cucumber and dip, and of course, cucumber salad!
2T to 4TVinegar - I find cider or rice works best
1/4t to 1/2t (or less!) Sweetener - I like maple best
pinch of salt
fresh ground black pepper (optional)
Slice the cucumbers - the thinner the slices the tastier the salad!
In the past I've used a vegetable peeler, the slicer side of our grater, or in a pinch, just a knife. If you're in the market for mandoline slicer but don't want to pay those kind of prices, I highly recomment Feemster's Famous Vegetable Slicer. I've had mine for a couple of years use it almost daily during the height of veggie season.
Mix all ingredients together. For best results, refrigerate for ten to fifteen minutes before serving.
Yum. I make essentially the same salad plus sliced onion.ReplyDelete
Thank you for the slicer recommendation - I've been considering a mandoline for a while.
It's also super good with chives/scallions/shallots or any of the other onion relatives.ReplyDelete
Another thing I do at times is add a quick drizzle of toasted sesame oil.
I originally got the slicer because I had been looking at mandolines and even the poorest mostly plastic versions were over $30 and all metal versions were over a hundred... I thought I'd try this slicer to see how much I'd even use it and I do! Lots!
Your pictures are usually wonderful but just wanted to thank you especially for sunshine on cucumbers.ReplyDelete
