Garden-Fresh Cucumber Salad

I’m eating this now and it’s wonderful.

You will need:

A generous friend who volunteers to give you fresh cucumbers out of her garden
The actual cucumbers — preferably small ones, maybe four to six to eight inches long
A lemon
Several sprigs of cilantro out of your own garden — go pick it right now
A dash or two of Real Salt

Rinse all the mud off, then slice the cucumbers into your bowl.

Squeeze the lemon halves into a separate bowl — that way you can keep the juice, leave the seeds; add as much of the fresh lemon juice as you’d like.  I used it all.

Chop cilantro into bite-sized pieces.

Stir it all together, then sprinkle with as much salt as you like.

Yum!  Enjoy!  What a great summer salad.
