Garlic Cucumber Salad

It’s nice outside today, so I was in the mood for summery foods- like salad.  It’s also a nice side dish for heavy food like pasta, stews, etc.  This is a quick recipe (only 4 ingredients!) that you can make up to a  day ahead of time.  The fresher and crunchier the cucumbers, the better.  Also, I like using cucumber that don’t have a lot of seeds, but that’s totally just my taste preference.


4 cups cucumbers, thinly sliced
1 tsp salt
2-3 cloves garlic, crushed
4 tsp lemon juice (fresh is better)


1.  Mix everything together in a large bowl.  Store in air-tight contained in fridge until ready to serve.
