Recipe: Cucumber Salad

March 14, 2018

I know what you're thinking, cucumber salad? Really, Kristen. But I swear, this salad is so darn good. My current obsession is anything tangy, sour, tart flavor. Hence, the apple cider vinegar love. Add it to veggies and we can call this obsession healthy.

The last few times I've made this, it's gone within two days. You may ask how do you serve this salad? For me, it's one of those eat right out of the container while standing in the fridge, salads. Or, stand at the sink with the container next to you, salad.

For Adam, it's a turkey burger side or chicken side, salad. The best part about this salad, it's so dang easy to make and everyone will love it. With spring approaching quickly, it's the perfect BBQ side. Make it once and I swear you'll be a sink side eater like I am.

Ps. talking about spring, tomorrow on the blog, I'm sharing all the spring clothes I am LOVING currently from Nords. There is so much good stuff, you don't want to miss it. Plus, the infamous denim popeye jacket and some new stuff from Target. It's finally spring and it's time to get in the mood!

PS. The secret - use fresh dill. You can use dried, but it doesn't give the same flavor. 

  • 6 cucumbers, sliced thin
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 4 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped 
  • 1/2 tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
How to Make: 
  1. Slice the cucumber and green onion. 
  2. In a large bowl, mix the cucumber and green onion together.
  3. In a small bowl, mix vinegar, honey, garlic, dill, salt and pepper. 
  4. Pour vinegar mixture over cucumbers, toss to coat. 
  5. Taste and if needed, ad salt or more vinegar 

Happy Wednesday friends!
