Cilantro-Lime Cucumber Salad

Ingrediants

  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and finely diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, finely minced
  • 1 Tbs fresh lime juice
  • 2 Tbs Liquid Gold Jalapeno White Balamic
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt, or to taste
  • black pepper to taste
  • 3 Tbs Liquid Gold Cilantro & Roasted Onion Olive Oil
  • 2 cucumbers, very finely sliced
  • 1 Tbs minced cilantro + a few whole leaves for garnish

Instructions

  1. Dice the jalapeno and garlic and add to a medium-sized bowl
  2. Add the fresh lime juice, jalapeno balsamic, crushed red pepper, salt and pepper. Use a whisk to incorporate the Olive Oil. Set aside.
  3. Finely slice the cucumber.  Use a mandolin if you have it, but a very sharp knife will work also.  Add the cucumber to the dressing and stir together.
  4. Finely mince the cilantro and add it to the bowl. Stir to combine. You can either let it sit in the fridge to marinade for a couple of hours or serve immediately
