Cucumber Crunch Salad

This salad is a refreshing and light option for the summer season, offering a delightful blend of crisp greens and vibrant flavors. The combination of lettuce, cucumber, and shredded red cabbage provides a satisfying crunch, perfect for beating the summer heat! Serve right away, or meal prep and store in your U-Konserve containers. 

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups lettuce (any variety you prefer, such as romaine or mixed greens), washed and torn into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup shelled edamame, cooked and cooled
  • 1 cup shredded red cabbage
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro (optional, for added flavor)
  • ¼ cup sliced almonds or sesame seeds (optional, for crunch)

For the dressing:

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon honey (or maple syrup for a vegan option)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

  1. In a large salad bowl, combine the torn lettuce, sliced cucumber, cooked edamame, shredded red cabbage, and chopped cilantro (if using). Toss gently to mix all the ingredients evenly.

  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, rice vinegar, soy sauce, honey, minced garlic, salt, and pepper to make the dressing.

  3. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss until all the ingredients are well coated.

  4. If using, sprinkle sliced almonds or sesame seeds over the top of the salad for an extra crunch.

  5. Serve immediately or store the salad and dressing on the side in your U-Konserve! Add grilled chicken, tofu, or shrimp to add more protein. Squeeze fresh lemon on top for some extra citrus kick!

Enjoy your nutritious and colorful salad!
