Cucumber Salad ~ a Raw and Vegan Recipe

serves 2 ~ $2.75 per serving
ingredients
  • 2 cucumbers ($1.00)
  • 1 medium onion ($.05)
  • 1/2 avocado ($.75)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil ($.20) 
  • 1 teaspoon  tarragon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 5 oz arugula ($3.50)
  • red pepper flakes

This is super simple and it's the dressing that makes it creamy and delish.

In a small bullet type blender, puree about half of one of the cucumbers, a couple onions slices, the half avocado, olive oil, tarragon, salt and pepper until very creamy and smooth. This will take a couple minutes.

Slice the rest of the cucumbers and onion and toss with the arugula. Dress and add a few crushed red pepper flakes.

Store any leftover dressing in the refrigerator for up to a week.

  5. I fixed this last night and of course my young son and I loved it...but my hubby is almost kind of stuck with Ranch dressings...and He LOVED it with capital letters...instead of the pepper flakes(didn't have in my pantry) I sprinkled little bity drops of Sririacha sauce. It's a hit for us.Thanks.
