Here’s a quick and easy twist on a side salad – it’s low fat, low calorie and really refreshing. It’s great for a summer BBQ or just something different. I paired mine with some shrimp for an easy meal and I couldn’t get enough of this stuff. The grapes, cucumbers and sweet onion pair really well together. Add in a little sweetness with the dressing and it’s a winner.
|The only ingredient missing here is the honey.|
I used an English cucumber for mine but a regular cucumber would work fine too. I liked the lack of seeds in the English cucumber though – plus I think it held up better in the refrigerator after a few days without getting too juicy. I think this is one of those things that tastes better after a night in the refrigerator once all the ingredients have had a chance to muddle together.
My mandolin slicer was set on 2 when I sliced up the cucumber for this, but I think next time I’ll put it on 3 so it’ll be easier to fork the cucumber slices.
