Spiralized Cucumber Dill Salad

One of the main rebuttals for going on a gluten free or a paleo diet is how difficult it is to get by without noodles and pasta. We appreciate that those foods have been a staple and mainstay in a lot of households, and losing them is a bit jarring. Although we’re slightly behind the curve here with the “spiralizer” kitchen gadget, now that we have one, we can’t get enough of it! This cucumber salad was our first adventure, and there are plenty more to come.

This salad is easy to throw together, and you could easily dice or thinly slice cucumber and get a similar result. That being said, the design of the spiralized cucumber really adds a nice touch to the dish. We hope you’ll consider picking up a spiralizer (they go on sale often on Amazon), and making this dish!

Ingredients
2 english cucumbers, spiralized or sliced
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced and quartered

dressing
1 C olive oil
3 Tbsp lemon juice
2 Tbsp golden balsamic vinegar
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 shallot, minced
1 Tbsp tarragon, minced
