Lynda’s Strawberry Cucumber Salad

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

1 tsp crushed mint2014-04-13 18.09.21-1

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!
