Lemony Cucumber Salad | The perfect,  fresh, crunchy and vibrant side dish for the Summer!

This is a light, crunchy little number that is bright and palate cleansing.  It would pair well with SO MANY things.  It’s great little salad on its own, but it would make a great crudités for your wine, cheese, and fruit plate.  Or the perfect side to your rich bbq.  Or even a great topping for your street tacos.  I love a versatile dish!!  Plus it comes together in a snap!

LEMONY CUCUMBER SALAD

  • 1 cup thinly sliced radishes
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped orange bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 English cucumbers, thinly sliced (about 6 cups)
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon rind
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

DIRECTIONS:  Combine first 4 ingredients in a large bowl. {I use a hand-held mandolin to make quick work of this part!}

Combine lemon rind and remaining ingredients in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Pour over cucumber mixture; toss well to coat.

Serve at room temperature or chilled.
