Cucumber Salad; Keeping It Fresh
My type of salad; super fresh. This one serves two and you can whip it up in minutes. Perfect as a side salad with something more hearty.
2 Lebanese cucumbers
2 corn on the cob, boiled and cut
1 jalapeño, thinly sliced
2-3 kaffir lime leaves, shredded
Half an avocado, diced
8-10 sprigs of fresh mint, leaves removed
Juice from 1-2 limes
1 teaspoon of freshly minced ginger
2 tablespoons of olive oil
Half the cucumbers and cut a small amount of the inside out, then slice on the diagonal. ( Just a fun way of cutting it to change it up!) In a bowl, combine all the ingredients.
Combine the dressing ingredients and dress the salad just before eating to keep it nice and crunchy.
