This salad was born out of necessity – I only had Carrots and a Cucumber to work with one fine day, and wanted some raw veggies. It is refreshing, sweet and downright delicious.
Easy C Salad
– 2 Carrots
– 1/2 Cucumber
– Several small Basil leaves
– 1 Table Spoon Olive Oil
– Salt to taste
Wash and peel the Carrots, then finely grate them. Wash and peel the Cucumber, then slice finely – I cut mine diagonally, then into smaller sections. Mix together in a bowl, add Olive Oil, Salt and a few leaves of fresh Basil. Enjoy!
Additions: You could add some fresh Mozzarella or Feta cheese for protein. I think Chicken would also be tasty with this salad but a red meat might be too strong in flavor and distract from the subtle sweetness of the Cucumber. If you discover some amazing additions, please let me know.
