Summer is coming to end and while I am looking forward to pumpkin spice lattes, football games and cool fall weather I will miss the amazing vegetables from the garden my husband grew out back! We have been eating out way through countless squash, zucchini, tomato, basil and cucumber recipes.
Last night while mixing and matching some delicious sounding cucumber salad recipes with what ingredients we had left in the cabinets (the struggle of not grocery shopping after vacation) I came up with a tasty little treat I thought I would share! I even managed to use a new vegetable peeler I received from Raaya without slicing my own fingers in the process(which is a culinary miracle).
So here is my new favorite summer Cucumber and Onion Salad:
1 large cucumber
1/2 purple onion
1/8 cup balsamic vinegar
1/8 cup extra virgin police oil
1 tbsp dill
2 tsp of sea salt
I used the slicer to make vegetable noodles out of the cucumber, then chopped up the onion. Next I simply combined all the ingredients in a large bowl, tossed it all with tongs, being sure to coat all of the vegetables and served! Simple!
