Strawberry and Cucumber Salad


Having a balsamic glaze with cucumbers is nothing new but I wasn’t sure how it would go with strawberries. I was intrigued though, when I came across this recipe for a strawberry cucumber salad with a honey balsamic glaze a few years ago. I remember trying it that very day since we were having friends over and of course it makes since to try a brand new and somewhat odd recipe out on an unsuspecting group of people. Most of us really liked it but a couple of friends couldn’t move past the mixing of the veggie and the fruit in the same dish.

Personally I loved the way the cucumbers and strawberries complimented each other and the glaze was the perfect tangy touch. Definitely a keeper recipe!

What you’ll need:
1 large cucumber, peeled and sliced (I left thin streaks of peel to add some color and texture.)
1 pint of strawberries, sliced in circles
2 TBS balsamic vinegar
2 TBS honey
What you’ll do:
Mix together the balsamic vinegar and honey, set aside.
Alternate layers of cucumbers and strawberries along the salad bowl, moving in a circular pattern.
(You’ll be filling the bowl from the outside in, not bottom to top.)
Pour the balsamic vinegar and honey over the cucumbers and strawberries.
You can eat it right away or let it chill in the refrigerator while the flavors have a chance to mingle and get to know each other.
If you try it please let me know how you like it!
