Cilantro Cucumber Salad
Posted on September 6, 2012
While we were in Bend this past weekend, my parent’s made reservations for us at one of the most talked about restaurants in Bend- Zydeco (http://www.zydecokitchen.com/).
They have a great menu and everyone was VERY happy with their dishes at the end of the night! Their BBQ Shrimp (w/southern grit cake) was delicious…and my sister had the Ahi Tuna with an awesome cucumber salad that I decided to duplicate last night (along with the shrimp).
The salad was a hit- light, refreshing, sweet yet savory- here is what you need:
3 medium to large cucumbers, sliced
1 red bell pepper, julienne cut & halved
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
1 shallot, finely chopped
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1/2 lemon, juiced and added to taste
salt & pepper, to taste
rice wine vinegar, to taste
1 tbsp white sugar
Combine all ingredients and chill for 30 minutes prior to serving!
