  • 3 medium cucumbers
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • fresh cracked pepper to taste
  • salt to taste


  • First, make your dressing. In a shaker mix all but the cucumbers. Shake or whisk well - you want everything really combined.
  • Grab your mandolin and start slicing away. I leave the peel on - but that's up to you. Also, use the guard on your mandolin. I like your fingers.
  • In a large bowl add the tangy dressing to the cucumber salad.
  • Plate and eat up. It's refreshing and light - so good. Keeps in the fridge for about 3 days. Oh, and I suggest chilling this salad for about 2 hours first. It's great when it's nice and cold.
