There is not quite enough to make a big batch of pickles yet,
but there are too many for just salads and snacking,
so I've been making a lot of cucumber salad,
one of our favorite summertime sides.
My husband is on a low carb/dairy free diet right now, though,
I had one with a dressing similar to green goddess (dairy)
and one vinegar based (with sugar).
So here is our compromise:
4 Cucumbers, peeled and sliced thinly
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar (some sugar, yes, but much less that my other recipe)
1 green onion, finely chopped
a couple sprigs of fresh parsley, chopped
a pinch of salt
freshly cracked black pepper
Simple, cheap, and my kid (who has been particularly picky lately) LOVES it to boot!
Win, win, win.
