English Cucumber Salad

Advertisements

My beautiful wife made this English cumber salad the other day. This was the first time I have ever had English cucumbers, and I liked them pretty well. I am not one who normally eats raw cucumbers as I really just don’t care for their taste. But these were different, they are a little sweeter than the common cucumber.

English cucumbers were actually bred to create a cucumber without some of the more undesirable characteristics that this vegetable has, such as a tough outer skin, large seeds, and a bitter taste. They are also known as hothouse cucumber, burpless cucumber, seedless cucumber, and European cucumber.

Healthy eating is not expensive!

We like to keep our healthy eating as simple and inexpensive as possible. Using fresh vegetables allows us to do so. This bowl of salad that yielded about 6 servings cost less than $6.00 US is filling enough you could make a small meal of it alone. But it pairs nicely with grilled chicken.

Ingredients:

Dressing:

  1. Slice cucumbers and red onion to your desired thickness, then place in a large bowl.
  2. Halve the cherry tomatoes and add to the bowl.
  3. Combine all dressing ingredients in another bowl, and then add to salad and mix well.
  4. Salt and pepper to taste, then either serve right away or place in the refrigerator for a later meal. The longer this salad sits, the tastier it becomes.
