Cucumber Salad

What do you do with the abundance of cucumbers growing in your garden or, as in my case, your husband brings home beautiful, giant cucumbers from the farmer's market?

You make cucumber salad!  Thanks to Kaylyn's Kitchen for this delicious recipe. Makes 2 generous servings or 4 side-dish servings.

  • 3 cucumbers, peeled
  • 1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 T apple cider vinegar 
  • sea salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • gorgonzola or feta cheese, optional if you can tolerate dairy

  1. Cut cucumbers in half lengthwise then slice into half-moons.  
  2. Peel and cut up the avocado into small cubes.
  3. Combine the cucumber, tomato, onion, avocado, and vinegar in a bowl and gently toss together.  
  4. Add in gorgonzola cheese and combine.  
  5. Season to taste with sea salt and fresh-ground black pepper.
