Anja's Cucumber Salad

Anja's Cucumber Salad - ButterYum

Generally speaking, I'm not a fan of cucumbers, and I find most cucumber salads are much too sweet, but my friend Anja served this straight up savory cucumber salad recently and I had to get the recipe.  When I made a double batch the following day, my husband said he could eat the entire batch himself.  Will definitely be making this one again and again.   

how to make savory cucumber salad 

To begin, slice cucumbers very thinly.  I like to use a mandoline to get perfectly uniform slices.  Feel free to peel the skins off if you like, but I like the way they look when they're partially peeled (as shown above).    

By the way, this is my new favorite peeler.  It never jams or gets clogged - the peels fly right out of it like they're being ejected.  Work better than any other peeler I've ever used.
