My Fresh Cucumber Pasta Salad Recipe

I regularly make this salad as a fresh side or appetizer on casual days and dinner dates. Considering the deliciously sophisticated flavors, this salad can easily be made for both casual or fancy settings.

I know all the vegetable noodle making hype is usually around zucchini and spaghetti squash, but can’t cucumber get some love to? Making cucumber pasta is just as simple as zucchini pasta, with both using either a julienne peeler or spiral vegetable slicer.

This cucumber pasta salad is quite delicious and gives the most magnificent fresh taste and smell. Pairing it with vinegar, olives and tomatoes makes it the perfect sunny salad.
