Cucumber and Carrot Salad

I eat at least one salad a day, sometimes more. I love it. But, salad doesn't have to mean just a simple bed of greens mixed with assorted veggies topped with dressing.

Salads can be as unique and interesting as all of you.

Here is a delicious option to use as a new side dish or chop up an egg or some lean meat to add on top and you have a well balanced option for lunches.


2 Medium Carrots, peeled

1 English Cucumber (or regular cucmber with seeds scooped out)

2 Green Onions, chopped

1 Lime

1 TBSP Sesame Seeds

Salt and Pepper


Squeeze the juice out of 1 lime, set aside (if you do not get about 2 TBSP of juice, add a splash of vinegar)

Using a spiralizer, peeler or mandolin cut or slice the carrots into long thin ribbons

Cut the cucumber lengthwoise to remove any seeds and then slice into long thing ribbons (or use a spiralizer)

Layer the carrot and cucumber ribbons on top of each other in a bowl, add chopped green onions and sesame seeds, drizzle with lime juice and sprinkle with a touch of salt and pepper.

Toss and enjoy!
