Cucumber Salad


Cucumbers are one of my favorite summer vegetables.

During my July vacation, I spent some days with my mother in law. She loves making cucumber salad. Her salad is so good, because she used to add a big tablespoon of crème fraîche (sour cream). I know i’s not really healthy, but it’s so delicious.

Today I want to share with you a healthy cucumber salad, very elegant and simple.

Crispy, refreshing, it’s perfect for summer!

You have no time to cook? It’s ready in 10 minutes!
