Persian Cucumber Salad

It is hot out, so we are opting for side dishes a little lighter and more refreshing, like this delicious cucumber salad, made with fresh ingredients. Pair it with you favorite protein, we enjoyed it for dinner with our favorite pork chops – watch for the post coming up!

Here are the simple, but yet deliciously non-processed ingredients:

  1. 4 Persian cucumbers, slice with a mandolin on setting one to make sure that the slices are thin
  2. 2 small vine ripe tomatoes, chopped
  3. 1 1/2 teaspoon of fresh dill weed, chopped
  4. 1 tbsp almond oil
  5. 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  6. pinch of sea salt to taste
  7. pinch of jalapeno flakes
  8. 1 1/2 tsp of black sesame seeds

Mix the veggies carefully with a big spoon and chill for 15 minutes if your veggies are not straight from the refrigerator.

Enjoy this salad anytime with any of your favorite proteins.

    Perfect! Read this post, had everything on hand and made it immediately! Gardens are overflowing with cucumbers and tomatoes this time of year and we’re always looking for something to do with them. Everyone loves the salad and the kids were especially thrilled with the addition of sesame seeds. Thanks!
