Serve this delicious salad with a nicely cooked piece of chicken breast, salmon or your favourite cut of meat for the perfect protein packed healthy meal!

2 cucumbers, very finely sliced (see photos)
1 jalapeno, seeded and finely diced
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/2 orange bell pepper, diced
3 small red onions, sliced in rings
½ teaspoon salt, or to taste
Fresh cracked black pepper, to taste
3 tablespoons olive oil
4 tablespoons chopped cilantro, to taste


Step 1   
Slice the jalapeño and red onion using a mandolin slicer or a sharp knife and add to a medium-sized bowl.

Step 2
Add 3 tablespoons of fresh lime juice, diced orange bell pepper, salt, and fresh cracked pepper. Use a whisk to incorporate the 3 tablespoons olive oil. Set aside. Finely slice the cucumbers. Use a mandolin if you have it, but a very sharp knife will do the trick. Add the cucumbers to the dressing and stir well together.

Step 3
Add cilantro to the bowl. Stir to combine. You can either let it sit in the fridge to marinate for a couple hours, or serve immediately.

Notes: Make sure that you let the salad sit on the counter for a little while before serving if it’s been in the fridge; the olive oil solidifies slightly when it’s cold.
