Cool Cucumber Mint Salad
I was looking for a fresh salad that was different from my typical leafy greens and this IS IT!
Definitely the perfect salad to accompany any hot day! This feel-good salad is energizing, crisp and very satisfying – and most importantly, it’s quick and easy to prepare!!
The texture is cool and refreshing on the taste buds – the cucumber and radish make the salad extra crunchy for those crunch lovers out there. The fresh mint compliments the already clean and crisp taste. The shredded carrot and crumbled feta atop the salad brings everything together and adds more substance to the salad helping you feel full.
I always aim to use the freshest ingredients that I can get my hands on. Luckily enough I had the cucumber and mint picked straight from the backyard garden which helped make this salad a flavour haven.
Prep time: 10 mins Serves 2-3
- 1 cucumber (thin skinned, non-bitter), sliced thin
- 2-3 red radishes, sliced thin
