Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. Are you making anything for your sweetie?
Our Valentine’s Day tradition between my Mister and some of my friends is to attend some sort of violent sport each year. For some reason I always feel compelled to celebrate this Hallmark day even though I don’t consider myself a mushy romantic. A few years ago we attended a hockey game, found it wasn’t violent enough and attended a LaCrosse game the years following. Now V Day is something I look forward to every year for that very reason. Go sports!
Now, you’re probably wondering what violence has to do with this cucumber salad recipe? Good question. I’ll have to get back to you on that.
This cucumber salad is a great accompaniment to any heavy entree. It is light and refreshing with pops of crunch from the red onion. I made it even lighter (healthier) by using greek-yogurt and fat-free sour cream. The important thing to remember about making cucumber salad is that cucumbers have a lot of water in them. You want to remove as much water as possible before combining all of your ingredients or else your cucumber salad will turn out very watery (and nobody likes a watery salad).
Happy day before V Day!
