How’s your cucumber plant doing? Mine is fully bonkers. Fully. The number of things we’ve done with cucumbers in our lunches and dinners (and tbh breakfasts some days) is growing bigger every day, and so far I’m proud to say that we aren’t sick of cukes yet because we’ve made an effort to serve them in lots of different ways. DIY ranch with cucumber sticks is our new “come over for happy hour, I have tons of snacks to get rid of” offering, Greek salads abound, and I’m never above eating an entire cucumber with salt and pepper as a salad.
And this! Marinated cucumbers in a soy-lime vinaigrette with hot peppers mixed in. The sauce is simple and the cucumbers are great after 20 minutes or a night in the fridge, so you can make this ahead of time and serve whenever it’s convenient.
Salad is important, and this one is importantly delicious.
