Summer Cucumber Salad Recipe


Simplicity and convenience is king when it comes to being healthy! 

This summer side salad could not be simpler or more tasty! Plus it requires no cooking – always a good thing at this time of year – and it’s ready in minutes.

I like to use a mandolin to quickly slice 2 or even 3 cucumbers, making enough of this to last for a few meals.

Unlike salads made with lettuce, this only gets better if it marinades for a day or two in your fridge. You can leave off the sesame seeds and sprinkle them at the end so they maintain that crunchy texture you’ll love.

Pick up some cucumbers at the farmer’s market, give it a try, and let me know what you think over on Facebook.



1 English cucumber, sliced thinly 

1 lemon (freshly juiced)
1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
Black or traditional sesame seeds
Sea salt (Celtic Grey, Himalayan, or Redmond Real Salt) and black pepper to taste


Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and enjoy – its as EASY as that!
