This is one of my husband’s favorites and it’s a perfect salad to bring to a memorial day party. It’s a cold, refreshing and crunchy side when served with a burger or grilled chicken. If you don’t have a mandolin it’s perfectly okay to use a knife, but try to slice the cucumber as thinly as possible. I’m a little OCD so I like to know my cucumber slices are all the same size.
- 1 english cucumber
- 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1/2 cup canola oil
- 1 clove garlic, finely minced
- 1/2 tablespoon Italian seasoning
- salt and pepper to taste
Slice cucumber with a mandolin to 1/4″ thickness. In a small bowl, add remaining ingredients and stir until well incorporated. Combine with cucumbers in a sealable dish and refrigerate overnight.
