Cucumber, Green Grape, and Avocado Salad


Description

This salad is fresh and satisfying with a lovely flavor


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 1/2 lbs seedless cucumbers (about 2 large cucumbers), peeled or unpeeled*
  • kosher salt
  • Approximately 30 green grapes, sliced in half
  • 1 avocado, cut into small chunks
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves, chopped

Instructions

  • Slice the cucumbers in half lengthwise.  (*If using cucumbers with seeds, use a spoon to scoop out the middle and discard the seeds.)  Then cut the cucumbers crosswise into 1/4″-1/2″ slices.  Place in a  large bowl and sprinkle with about a teaspoon of kosher salt.  Toss to distribute the salt evenly around the cucumber pieces.  Let sit for 20 to 25 minutes while the salt helps pull excess moisture out of the cucumbers.  Then rinse off the salt, drain the cucumbers, and squeeze out any more excess moisture with a cloth or paper towels.
  • Mix the cucumbers, grapes, and avocado in a large bowl.  In a small, separate bowl, whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, garlic, and mint.  Drizzle the dressing over the cucumber mixture and carefully stir to evenly coat everything.  Add more salt to taste, if preferred.  (I did not add extra salt.)  Enjoy!
