Hello (almost) September! As much as I don’t want to say goodbye to summer, we’ll soon have to do it. But before that, I’d like to share with you another cucumber salad recipe. Did you have a chance to see this Spiralized Cucumber Salad With Tomatoes And Feta? If by any chance you are looking for a simple and refreshing cold soup, this Cold Cucumber Yogurt Soup – Tarator is worth trying. I also have this recipe for  Tomato Cucumber Spinach Salad With Avocado Parsley Dressing, which I make quite often.

Have a lot of cucumbers from your garden? Make sure you try thus Cucumber And Onion Salad With Apple Cider Vinegar And Olives. If you don’t have any veggies in your garden, just like me – get a cucumber from the store and make this easy, light, flavorful and colorful summer salad.

I know creamy cucumber salads, where the dressing is made with yogurt are popular and everyone loves them. They are good! But I personally am a fan of non-creamy cucumber salads, where the dressing os made with olive oil and apple cider vinegar.

Less calories, lighter, crunchier salad. This is why I love cucumbers!

I’m not going to argue, cucumbers have almost no flavor. They are fresh, but taste like water. This is why we need to combine them with other, more flavorful veggies, like onions. Purple onions go perfectly with cucumbers.

Dill is the best addition to a cucumber salad in my opinion.

And olives – big, meaty Kalamata olives. I know I should have used pitted olives, but when I saw these at the store and even tried them, I had to get them.

They tasted amazing, not too salty and melted on my mouth.

This Cucumber And Onion Salad With Apple Cider Vinegar And Olives is perfect to make year round. A simple combination of flavors and textures.
