Cucumber Mint Salad with Lemon Mint Dressing

Summer is finally here, and with it comes those wonderful warm days when beautiful salads and watermelons are particularly attractive.  I happen to have a lot of mint in my garden, so today I am putting together a delicious cucumber mint salad with a lemon mint dressing.  Doesn’t that sound fantastic?  It is so refreshing.

 

Cucumber Mint Salad:

1 large european cucumber
1/3 cup chopped fresh mint
1 tablespoon minced fresh dill
3 tablespoon red onion, finely diced

1 teaspoon lemon juice

Dressing:
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1/4 cup vegan plain yogurt
3 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon agave
1/4 teaspoons fresh dill, minced
6-8 mint leaves

In a small bowl, soak the finely diced red onions in a teaspoon of lemon juice for a few minutes. This will soften and milden the taste slightly.
In a blender, add all the other ingredients for the dressing with the exception of the oil.
Blend until smooth.

Add oil slowly while blender is blending on low speed. Set aside.

In a salad bowl, add the cucumber, chopped mint, dill, and onion. Mix together well. When ready to serve, add the dressing and enjoy!

    Hi Chef Ani,

    I was wondering if you could do a video on a super easy, when you run out of time, salad dressing.

    Thanks,
    Lynae

    P.S. I love your videos!!!
