This is a mixed green salad, but not your typical one.
Instead of lettuce, chunks of cucumber, avocado and feta are tossed with mint and a lime vinaigrette. So simple, yet such a wonderful combination of flavor and texture.
3 cucumbers, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch pieces
2 ripe avocados, peeled and chopped into 1/2 inch pieces
1 Tbs plus 2 tsp fresh lime juice
1/2 cup chopped fresh mint
1/2 cup crumbled feta
2 Tbs extra-virgin olive oil
1. Put cucumber in a colander. Sprinkle with salt and let sit for 30 minutes. Use paper towels to blot the cucumbers and remove salt and excess moisture.
2. Put avocado into a large bowl and toss with the 2 tsp lime juice.
3. Whisk together olive oil and the 1 Tbs lime juice to make dressing.
4. Add cucumbers, mint, and dressing to avocado and combine. Gently stir in the crumbled feta.
Recipe from Kalyn’s Kitchen
Lots of guitar, a thick beat and cool bass line. Top that with shoegazey vocals and ‘Dark Clouds’ is music to make Friday even better.
