Cucumber salad with lime and cilantro

Side dish tonight, June 13, 2015
Absolute a great and fresh salad really great for the summer barbecue / grill party

  • 1 small red onion, sliced
  • 2 cucumbers, peeled or not – based on your preference, sliced
  • 2-3 medium sized limes, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons of finely chopped cilantro (can also use parsley if you prefer)
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • Salt to taste
1) To remove some of the bitterness/spiciness from the onions, place the onion slices in a bowl, sprinkle about ½ tablespoon of salt over the onions. Rub the salt in and then cover with water for a few minutes. Then drain and rinse the onions well. Place the sliced cucumbers, sliced onions, lime juice, chopped cilantro, and olive oil in a bowl. Mix well, taste and add salt as needed. Serve immediately or let rest refrigerated for at least 30 minutes before serving.
