When you need one more dish to add to your menu, choose this Paleo Cucumber Salad. It’s quick and simple and only requires a few ingredients that you probably already have on hand.
This salad was part of our traditional Polish paleo Christmas dinner. It’s a quick little dish that is not hard to make which is why it will work perfectly when you just need one more recipe to serve when you have company or just a few friends coming to dinner.
Why English Cucumbers?
I chose to use English cucumbers because they have smaller seeds than typical cucumbers. Though they tend to be slightly sweeter, they’re much easier to simply slice and go.
A Dairy-Free Dressing
Traditionally this salad is served with a greek yogurt based dressing but since I’m currently steering clear of all dairy products, I decided to use Primal Kitchen mayonnaise as my base for this dairy-free version.
If you haven’t tried Primal Kitchen mayo, you should definitely give it a try at some point but don’t worry if you currently don’t have it available, you can still make this recipe if you make your own mayo. Just give yourself an extra 15-20 minutes to whip that homemade mayo up first.
