Cucumber, Red Onion, and Cabbage Salad

This dish is so refreshingly delightful I’ve made it the last two nights for dinner and again for lunch today.  What can I say, as D puts it, I tend to fixate on something and eat it for days. The great thing about this salad is it can either be a tasty side dish or, you can add rice or noodles and make it a main course. It’s easy to be versatile with it and for a linear thinker like me, it’s super easy to ‘think outside of the box’ on this one.

Warning: The dressing tends to pack a punch so if you don’t enjoy heat as much as I do (the more I sweat and am desperate for a glass of water the better!) you may need to alter the garlic and red pepper to your taste.

How to make it:

Thinly slice the cucumber, red onion, and cabbage and put them all in a large bowl.

Chop up  a handful of cilantro and throw in the bowl with the other vegetables.

It will look something like this:

Then, mix together the remaining ingredients to make a spicy little dressing. There really isn’t a science to it, I typically just do it to taste.

Use these:

Once all ingredients are combined, transfer to smaller bowl and garnish with more chopped cilantro!
