This spiralized cucumber salad comes together in under 10 minutes! Cucumber noodles are tossed with feta and mint in a lemon vinaigrette.
What. A. Weekend.
I’m just back from an absolutely amazing weekend in Salt Lake City where I attended my very first food blogging conference! While it was great to learn all about food blogging and eat all of the food, the highlight for me was to meet my favorite blogging ladies. We’ve known each other for nearly 2 years and talk to each other daily, but we’d never met in person before!
And they were just as fabulous in person as they are online!
So, because yesterday was a holiday in Canada, and because I a was justalittletired from the weekend, I’m posting this spiralized cucumber salad recipe on a Tuesday!
This recipe is SO simple, and super fast to whip up. I almost didn’t want to post it, it’s that simple!
But I figured that if you are like me, you might occasionally leave things last minute, and need a fresh and simple side salad recipe for the picnic/barbecue/birthday party you’re attending.
And you know what? Sometimes simple even tastes better.
For this salad, I broke out my spiralizer to make cucumber noodles….I hadn’t broken it out since I made this Asian Salad with Salmon, Ginger and Lime Dressing! I actually found that it made the cucumber noodles too long, so you may wish to cut them up a little bit to get them a little shorter.
Once the cucumber noodles are made, shake together a super simple vinaigrette: lemon for flavor, white wine vinegar for the tanginess, and honey for a touch of sweetness.
Toss it all together with some fresh mint and crumbled feta cheese.
And voila! A fresh, crunchy salad that has the perfect blend of flavors! And no one will ever guess it only took you 10 minutes 😉
Happy Tuesday friends! I will be back on Thursday and I’m (hopefully) bringing us a slow cooker dinner recipe!
