Sweet & Spicy Cucumber Salad

The perfect salad for lunch or as a healthy addition to any dinner entree. If you want a fresh, crisp twist on your regular lettuce-and-vinaigrette routine, I’d recommend this one.

Notice that my cucumbers look more like flowers? If you want a similar effect, just press a cookie cutter over your sliced cucumber rounds for the same effect.

Why bother with this step?

Creative food is always more fun to eat.


1/2 cucumber, sliced into thin rounds

sliced veggies of choice (I used diced tomatoes and sliced radishes)

2 t chipotle or harissa oil

2 t red wine vinegar

1/2 t Worcestershire sauce

pinch of crushed garlic

1 t or less stevia

seasonings to taste: black pepper, salt (although you can easily omit this one without losing any flavor)


-In a small bowl, combine all ingredients, except veggies. Mix well.

-Add sliced cucumber and veggies of choice. Toss and serve chilled.
