Test Kitchen Tuesday: Sweet 'n Spicy Cucumber Salad

Sometimes the same old sides night in and night out can get boring. Especially when you're feeding a family, you've got to keep things exciting and make sure it's a meal everyone is looking forward to. Next time you're looking to spice up a side item, try this spin on a cucumber salad. You don't have to stop there. This would be great with any of your favorite vegetables!

Here's what you'll need: Sweet 'n Spicy Cucumber Salad

  • 2 Tbsp fresh-squeezed lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp raw honey, warmed
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 large cucumber
  • 1 Tbsp fresh chives, minced
  • 1 Tbsp basil
  • 1 Tbsp cilantro, minced
  • 2 Tbsp chopped nuts

Here's what to do:

Slice the cucumber lengthwise and then chop.

Squeeze lime juice into a small bowl.

Add honey and remaining herbs and spices.

Whisk the mixture together well to form a "dressing".

Add the lime juice mixture and nuts to the cucumbers in a large bowl and toss well to combine.

You can also substitute your own favorite herbs instead of the ones listed. This a great as a side at a cookout, or even a base for a salad.

What are some of your favorite ways to make vegetables?
