CUCUMBER SALAD


Ingredients:

  • (2) fresh cucumbers
  • up to (1/4) cup chopped fresh chives
  • up to (1/4) cup chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • (1/4) cup lemon vinaigrette
  • black pepper & salt to taste

SIMPLEST LEMON VINAIGRETTE:

  • (1/4) cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • (1/2) cup olive or vegetable oil
  • (1 tbsp) sweetener or sugar
  • (1/2) tsp salt
Method:

  1. Start by washing the cucumbers well and peeling them decoratively as desired.
  2. Slice all the cucumbers cross wise into slices 1⁄2 inch thick, or as thick or thin as you’d like! Add to a salad bowl and prepare the remaining ingredients. Chop the chives and parsley both fine using a chopping knife, taking care to use the knife safely. Add the herbs to the cucumbers and mix gently.
  3. Next, prepare the vinaigrette. Get a clean jar with a lid (or a container with a lid) and measure (1/2) cup vegetable or or olive oil into the jar. Juice the lemons and strain the seeds. Measure (1/4) cup of lemon juice in to the jar and then add the sugar and salt. Now shake it up! (With the lid on of course!)
  4. Before serving, pour (1/4) cup of the dressing over the cucumber mixture and stir well with a spoon. Serve with salt and pepper to taste.
