Cool as a Cucumber Salad

Cucumbers are an easy "salad" option around here. They are a nice cool touch to a Spring chicken or fish meal.

Serves 4

1 large English, seedless cucumber, peeled and cut into very thin slices
5 tablespoons light olive oil (or canola oil)
4 tablespoons Red Wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon oregano
sea salt and pepper to taste

It really doesn't get any easier than this!
Peel and slice cucumber and toss into a medium sized bowl.
In a small bowl mix together oil and vinegar until emulsified.
Pour over cucumbers and add salt, pepper and oregano.
Stir regularly so that cucumbers are all well covered.

Fresh dill, in the summertime, from your garden, adds a wonderful touch as well in place of the oregano.
