Refreshing Carrot and Cucumber Side Salad
I asked my husband what he wanted for dinner and he replied: “I don’t know. Something healthy.“
Although that sounds easy, but when someone says Healthy, in my head that means lots of vegetables and no meat.
So I decided to make Chicken with creamy mushroom base in a slow cooker, so that would give me more time to do other things, and for the “healthy” touch, I made this salad.
Here is the recipe for the salad (makes about 3 servings):
2 large carrots
1 salad pickle or English cucumber
1/2 lime, juiced
fresh mint and cilantro to taste
salt to taste
Use Julienne peeler to shred the vegetables, add the rest of the ingredients, toss and let sit for about 10 minutes for vegetables to absorb the juice and herb flavors. Enjoy.
P.S. I asked husband to rate the chicken. He gave it 5 stars. Maybe I will share the recipe in the next post.
