A new take on a classic summer dish this minted lime cucumber salad is the perfect side dish for summer cookouts, picnics, or even just a hot day at home. Slices of crisp cucumber mellow in lime juice mixed with mint and ginger. The result is a thirst quenching, refreshing summertime salad.
A classic cucumber salad is comprised of sugar, vinegar, onion, and a little salt. Some people add sour cream. But why stop there? Cucumber salad is a great base for exploring flavor combinations. You could swap out red pepper flakes for the ginger in this recipe to bring some heat. The possibilities are endless. I intend to explore them all while cucumbers are running 3 for $1.99 at the grocery store! So, stay tuned.
Pro tip: Drain extra dressing off of leftover salad into a separate container. It prevents the leftover salad from becoming soggy. Pour the dressing over leftovers when serving.
