cool as a cucumber salad Recipe

Difficulty: Easy | Total Time: 5 minutes | Active Time: | Makes: 2-3 servings

it’s still summer! while i’d love to pretend it’s cloudy outside and sip on hot soup and cups of tea all day, that is simply not the situation.

the farmers’ market is still bursting at the seems with foods to cool our bodies down, so we better take advantage of it while it lasts.

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 cup thinly sliced cucumber
  • 1 cup chopped red cabbage
  • 3 tbsp finely chopped mint leaves
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 5 tbsp rice vinegar

INSTRUCTIONS
