There’s nothing like the crisp crunch of summer cucumbers, especially when paired with sweet onions and tart apple cider vinegar. Cucumbers make for a great Lean and Green recipe ingredient because they are a lower carbohydrate option and full of fiber. In addition, their crunchy texture is sooo satisfying. This easy recipe makes a lovely summer side dish (or a winter one too!) perfect with any grilled lean meats. Try with Tuscan Grilled Steak, chicken thighs dusted with Cinnamon Chipotle and much more!
4 C sliced cucumbers (peels on or off- your choice)
2 T apple cider vinegar
1/4 C thinly sliced white onion or red onion
Toss all ingredients together in a medium sized bowl. Let sit for 15 minutes to allow the vinegar to mellow the onion and flavors to meld. Serve chilled.
