I love cucumbers! They are refreshing and have an amazing "green" flavor. Yes, I said green. I can't think of any other way to describe it! And they always taste so cold, somehow colder than other veggies. So of course I wanted to make this incredible looking cucumber salad!
It was paired with a recipe for Grilled Lemon-Dill Salmon (which you will see in my next blog). THe cucumber salad looked so good I actually made the salmon to go with it (not a huge fan). And I bet you want to know how the salad went over? Well let me tell you!
INCREDIBLY TASTY, HEALTHY FEEL, FRESH FLAVOR - and it doesnt have any oil in it so it is truely 100% low cal!
Very few recipes are repeats in our house - just too many to make - but this one will be used over and over this summer! Oh, and I changed the recipe up a bit. I hope you don't mind!
