Cucumber salad

cucumber salad

I just had too many cucumbers that had been sitting for a while, nearing the end of their lives. I found this recipe that worked pretty well and decided to keep it for variety. What makes it fancy is that the cucumber has been cut with a potato peeler. What makes it tasty is the dressing! Credits for the inspiration go to a post made by Mpourek at sintagespareas.



  • 2 big cucumbers
  • 1 teaspoon mint
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • sea salt or salt and pepper

How to make: Blend all the ingredients until they are well combined. Peel and discard the skin of the cucumber. Now use the peeler to create long strips of cucumber. Put in a serving dish and add the sauce on top.

Notes and tips: For this recipe, I used dry spices (mint and ginger), but, of course, it’s better to use fresh.
