  • 1 English cucumber
  • ½ cup cherry tomatoes
  • 1 lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. cumin ground
  • salt


  • Peel the cucumber and cut into 3 wholes. Slice them in half, then into thin spears size to your liking. Place in a shallow serving bowl.
  • In a very small bowl, mix the lemon, cumin, and salt, then drizzle the mixture all over the cucumbers. You can either mix the dressing on the side or mix in with the cucumbers like I do.
  • Add whole cherry tomatoes then garnish with a sprinkle of cumin (I enjoy extra cumin on my salad). Enjoy right away. 



Tips for a Tasty Cucumber Salad!
  1. If you are dealing with bitter cucumbers, then soak them in salt water for a bit. This will also help with watery cucumbers.
  2. Switch things up by using carrots instead of cucumbers. Follow the same exact instructions mentioned below, and enjoy a refreshing crunchy bite!
  3. For extra flavor, add onion slices, fresh herbs, or whatever you find yourself craving to your mix.
