Cucumber and Red Onion Salad

Another recipe from the Nourishing Gourmet!
This stuff is great. It goes great as a side dish for grilled meats. I ate mine right on top of my bunless burger with a thick slice of tomato and avocado...delicious! It is great by itself too...I couldn't help snacking on it while waiting for our burgers. -Kristin

3-4 large cucumbers, peeled, and sliced thickly and on a diagonal
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
1 t. celery seed
4 T. olive oil
3 T. fresh lemon juice
1 t. salt
2-3 garlic cloves

  • In 8x8 baking dish combine the cucumbers and red onion slices.
  • In a bowl combine remaining ingredients.
  • Pour over and mix well.
  • Chill for a few hours for flavors to really meld.
  • Mix right before serving.
