Cucumber salads come with a great debate at this table. To cream or not to cream? To onion or not to onion. To sugar or not to sugar? Simple Cucumber Salad with Lime Vinaigrette offered another level to the debate. To cheese or not to cheese.
Red onions were reduced to a quarter cup and chickpeas were omitted.
Scaled for Likability: Great
Most cucumber salads in this variety contained mint. Mint as far as this table is concerned is for desserts, gum, and toothpaste. Mint is not for dinner. It was the lack of mine that drew me to this recipe along with the crumble feta and lime vinaigrette dressing.
Tangy dressing, salty cheese, crunchy cucumbers make a great salad. If the cucs were left thicker, the salad could be made the night before for a stronger infused dressing flavor. Chickpeas would have been great and I was sad the store didn't have any. My favorite taste was from the cilantro. Never would I have guessed cilantro and cucs could pair so we'll together. Red onion was good but next time shallot onions will be added instead along with zest of lime in the vinaigrette.
