A Salad a Day: Take 2, Day 4 and Day 5

Yesterday, Day 4, I ate left over salad from the day before.  It was a busy day, and there was plenty left over, so I didn't bother making a new salad.  Today, Day 5, I make a new salad... oh... and the most yummy Curry Slit Pea Soup.

Cucumber salad with lime and cilantro
Easy and delicious cucumber salad recipe made with sliced cucumbers and red onions marinated with a lime cilantro dressing.
Ingredients
  • 1 small red onion, sliced
  • 2 cucumbers, peeled or not – based on your preference, sliced
  • 2-3 medium sized limes, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons of finely chopped cilantro (can also use parsley if you prefer)
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • Salt to taste
Instructions
  1. To remove some of the bitterness/spiciness from the onions, place the onion slices in a bowl, sprinkle about ½ tablespoon of salt over the onions. Rub the salt in and then cover with water for a few minutes. Then drain and rinse the onions well.
  2. Place the sliced cucumbers, sliced onions, lime juice, chopped cilantro, and olive oil in a bowl.
  3. Mix well, taste and add salt as needed.
  4. Serve immediately or let rest refrigerated for at least 30 minutes before serving.
