Sunday Salad: Cilantro Lime Cucumber Salad

When we made plans for a cookout with friends last weekend to celebrate Christian’s birthday, I knew I had to find a cucumber salad. It’s one of his favorites. I never make it. Another one of his favorites, cilantro. The recipe below was a no brainer. And it was an instant hit.

Recipe from The Food Charlatan

Cilantro-Lime Cucumber Salad
Yield: 5-6 side servings

Ingredients
1 jalapeno, seeded and finely diced
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
½ teaspoon salt, or to taste
black pepper to taste
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 cucumbers, very finely sliced (see photos)
4 tablespoons minced cilantro, to taste

Instructions

Head on over to her blog to read how to make it!

My only modification was to double the recipe. I had ten mouths to feed, and this produced enough for everyone.

In party celebration mode, I forgot to take photos. Good thing Pinterest is filled with them!

Another great summer salad for our weekly rotation!
