chiara’s cucumbers w/ lime and salt

salads

Story

Chiara whipped these together when we were in Bellport. Super happy to have this in the recipe box that is my head since we had a freakin bumper crop of cucumbers this summer, including one that was 2 ft long (yes, its true). I didn’t enter it into the Guinness, but that is something I would try to do. Anyway, my kids love them and I love this simple preparation, especially for Texas summers when limes are 7 for a dollar.  Feeling inspired to try this trick with other raw vegetables like shaved radishes, sliced tomatoes, or shaved asparagus.

Ingredients

cucumbers
olive oil
flaky sea salt
lime juice
lime zest

Recipe

Do a quick peel on your cucumbers, then slice them. Drizzle a bit of good olive oil, grate the zest of a lime or so and add the juice of one or two limes to taste. Sprinkle with sea salt.
