Paleo Cucumber Sesame Salad

It is best to eat this salad fresh as the cucumbers can lose moisture.

 

 

What You Shall Need:

1 zucchini peeled and juilenned or spiralized. (You will need either a julienne peeler or spiral vegetable slicer.)

3 cucumbers peeled and julienned or spiralized

8-12 cherry tomatoes, halved

2 cloves garlic, very finely chopped

1 and 1/2 tbsp white wine vinegar

1/2 tsp fresh grated ginger ( or 1/4 tsp ground ginger). Fresh preferred.

1/4 tsp sea salt

2 tbsp. dark sesame oil

5 mint leaves, finely diced

1/2 jalapeno pepper seeded and very finely chopped

1 avocado, sliced

What You Shall Do:

1. Combine the zucchini, cucumber and tomatoes into a medium bowl.

2. In a measuring cup or small bowl, combine the garlic, vinegar, ginger, and sea salt. Whisk in the sesame oil. Pour the dressing onto the noodles.

3. Garnish with mint, avocado and jalapeno pepper.

If you like spicy food then do not remove the seeds of the jalapeno!
