1 cucumber, spiralized*
2/3 cup matchstick carrots
1 bunch’s worth of green tops of fresh shallots or spring onion, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1 clove garlic, minced
12 grape tomatoes, quartered
juice of 1/2 lemon
freshly ground black pepper
Cut the spiralized cucumber in half. Place in a medium bowl. Add the remaining ingredients, toss to evenly distribute all ingredients. Allow to marinate at room temperature one hour prior to serving.
*I used this handheld tool I bought very cheaply on Amazon.
I’ve been enjoying playing with my little handheld spiralizer. I’m not fooled into thinking it is pasta but it is saving the tedium of chopping. This salad was made extra special by the fresh shallot tops which I had never had before! They added a bit of onion-y goodness without having to toss in regular raw onion which I sometimes find overpowering cucumber salad.
