Level of difficulty: Simple, just some chopping takes a little time
Makes 6-8 servings
Came up with this on a last minute whim, and then couldn’t remember it so have now made it a few times and results below. In addition to being a really refreshing and pleasing salad, it is a great accompaniment to any kind of pork cut (loin, chop, etc.) if you heat it just a bit.
In a medium sized bowl assemble main ingredients, simply piling on as you prepare.
(1) English Cucumber, skin on (scrubbed clean of course) and seeded. Note that saving the seeds for a later ingredient to a lemon/cucumber and water detox drink means no scraps here. Sliced very thin. Patted dry.
(1) C each cleaned and patted dry black (or red) and green grapes, cut in half
(1) oz. mint leaves, cleaned and patted dry, chopped but not too finely.
1/3 C EVOO
Juice of one lime
1/2 TBS honey
Whisk above well and pour over salad ingredients. Mix gently but well. Add Salt and pepper to taste. Tastes best if it sits for ~ 1/2 hour chilling before serving.
PS – If you want to really kick this up with a sharp dimension, add a thinly sliced clove or two of garlic.
Excellent, simple, refreshing salad.
