Cucumber and Cilantro Salad

This is not a recipe, it is just a combination I love. The perfect salad to have on hand all summer. A mandolin makes quick work of producing paper-thin slices – I keep my mandolin on my countertop and use it everyday. Seasoned rice vinegar has a mere 20 calories a tablespoon so indulge to your heart’s content..

1/2 Hot House English Cucumber (sold in plastic wrap)

3 Tbs Seasoned Rice Vinegar

Cilantro leaves to taste

  • Slice the cucumber paper thin
  • Add seasoned rice vinegar and cilantro and toss to coat
  • Let this mixture sit for at least 15 minutes to let the flavors meld

You will have a fair amount of juice/vinegar at the bottom of the bowl. If you want to be thrifty, reserve and add more cucumbers and cilantro. Seasoned rice vinegar is low acid and balanced with salt and a bit of sugar.
