4 Ingredients + S&P combined with 5-10 minutes are all you need to make "the classic" mouthwatering cucumber salad. I even offer 2 other ways to step it up a notch by adding just a couple more ingredients along the way.
The tangy, juicy, salad is a favorite in our home. We eat this weekly during the summer and often extend it into the year since they're such common ingredients and I can whip it up in 5-10 minutes flat. Sometimes you want a delicious yet simple recipe to pull from and this is just that. After I made the video I realized it doesn't even have my mom's variety on how she used to make it growing up, so we'll have to do that in a future recipe. In the mean time, this is lip-smacking good, come and get some
In general this salad goes like this: cucumber, a little more tomato than cucumber, a little less onion than both so it doesn't overpower. Salt, pepper, lemon/lime/apple cider vinegar to taste and you are there. I truly don't measure, if I want another tomato, I add it. If it needs more salt, I add it. If I want it stepped up a level, I use the additions below. Easy! You can also make this and keep it in the fridge as the apple cider vinegar will keep it fresh and crisp.
CC's Classic Cucumber Salad
1/4 of an onion +
S&P to taste
1-2 Tbsp of Apple Cider Vinegar, Lime or Lemon Juice
Step it up with:
Add a pinch of fresh or dried dill (to taste)
1-2 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast
Go for the gold:
Add sliced green olives to taste (1/2 cup or so, a good amount)
1-2 Tbsp Vegan Parmesan
The image above is the "go for the gold" with everything and the image below is somewhere in-between without the vegan parm but with the dill, nutritional yeast and olives. Delicious!
