A Cool Fresh Cucumber Creaminess!
An uncomplicated salad that is worth obsessing over, presenting the Cucumber Ribbon Salad with a delightful Creamy Dill Dressing! Sounds good? Well, it tastes even better!
This is a very refreshing and invigorating salad, with a touch of tanginess, sweetness and a lot of goodness that is low in fat, gluten and dairy-free, no oil, no sugar and completely plant-based. The cucumber and avocado create an ideal combination, being one is rich and the other light, and they play off each other flawlessly like peanut butter and jelly! This recipe is a celebration of fabulous greens on your plate and palate. The dressing is made with a mixture of the avocado, lime juice, garlic and dill- hitting the target with wonderful flavors. Play with your imagination and start getting creative, if you’re not into creaminess, you can do an Asian-type of dressing, very similar to my Japanese Sweet and Tangy Salad recipe.
A superb salad that is so tasty and full of healthy benefits for your body and mind. Avocados are heart-healthy and are good for expecting mommies! Plus they aid in digestion and regulate cholesterol level. The cucumbers are good for our skin, plus all these amazing benefits…
So, let’s get on with freshness and eat some salad, baby!
