Happy Sunday! I was experimenting in the kitchen earlier today out of boredom, and came up with this delicious cucumber and strawberry salad, and thought I’d share! My inspiration was the Cloister Honey I got at an event in Raleigh late last year. I wanted to make something with it, and I was in an appetizer kinda mood.
Lynda’s Strawberry Cucumber Salad
2 tbsp Newman’s Own Balsamic Vinaigrette
2 tbsp Cloister Lemon Honey (or whichever honey you prefer)
Strawberries (I used half of a container)
½ a large cucumber
For the dressing:
The honey that I used is actually a solid honey, but you can use whatever you have on hand. I added my honey, crushed mint, and balsamic vinegar to a small bowl and mixed it until it was a smooth glaze consistency.
For the salad:
I used a potato peeler to peel off alternating parts of the cucumber. I then sliced the cucumber and strawberry into thin circular pieces. I added the strawberry and cucumber slices into a circular bowl, alternating each layer.
Once all the strawberry and cucumber slices are in the bowl, drizzle all of the dressing on top, and enjoy!
If you try it, let me know what you think!
Have a great week,
