Summer is one of my favorite times of the year for many reasons, but mainly because it’s a time when fruits and vegetables are growing in abundance. I don’t harvest much myself because the deer would eat everything I would try to plant, so I just grow tomatoes and herbs on my deck. However, I wish I could grown more because I LOVE cucumbers; especially when paired with a light dressing like this Asian Cucumber Salad.

Luckily for me, I live in the highlands of New Jersey where farm stands pop up this time of year all over the place so they’re readily available. Recently, I had purchased a few English cucumbers at local my farmers market and wanted to make a new salad with them.

We prefer the English cucumbers because they’re seedless (well mostly) and since my husband suffers from diverticulitis, I try to cut back on seedy fruits and vegetables as much as possible.

Some of the best salads are the simplest ones to make too, like this Asian Cucumber Salad.  I just toss the washed and sliced cucumbers with a little red onion; then make an Asian dressing.

To make the dressing, combine honey, rice wine vinegar, Dijon mustard, mayonnaise and a little sesame oil in a bowl and whisk until smooth. You can also add the ingredients to a mini food processor and blend; which is the method I prefer using.

See how easy this Asian Cucumber Salad is to make and it’s deliciously light, crispy and refreshing; especially on a hot day. If you’d like, you can also garnish with some sesame seeds, but like I mentioned we don’t like to add any unnecessary seeds to our diet.

This salad is also perfect for those Summer cookouts because it’s dairy and gluten free. ~Enjoy!
