My mom recently introduced me to these little tiny baby cucumbers that you can find in a pack at the grocery store.
They are young, tender, and deliciously sweet. I used them to make a very simple, 3-minute salad to go with my dinner the other night. Check it out!
-2 baby cucumbers
-1 1/2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
-2 tsp capers
-1 tbsp roasted red peppers, chopped
1. Cut baby cucumbers into slices. How cute are these? They're the size of quarters :)
2. Put cucumbers in a bowl and splash some balsamic vinegar onto it.
3. Add capers. The salty briny flavor adds a fantastic element to the mix.
I love the flavor of capers in just about anything!
4. Chop up some roasted red peppers (i get the kind in a jar so it's always available).
5. Mix together and serve!
I love this simple salad that you can whip up in just a few minutes. And i served it in a ramekin. Just because I can :)
So simple, but packed with flavor. Sweet cucumbers against that intense unmistakable flavor of balsamic vinegar, and the fantastic capers and red peppers. Mmm!
If you're bored of the same old lettuce-based salad, this is a great substitute! And normal cucumbers would be just as good too :) Cheers!
