This salad is my new addiction. Now that temps are increasing, I see myself eating this on the regular, throughout the hot summer months. Not only is it lemony-sweet-garlicky OMG-delicious, but it feels nourishing and revitalizing while leaving me full of energy. Total winner!
Cucumber Noodles with Garlic Tahini Sauce Recipe
(4 servings, 10 minutes)
½ c tahini
½ c lemon juice
3 Tbsp water
4 cloves garlic pressed/fine mince
1.5 Tbsp maple syrup
¼ tsp salt
¼ cup fresh chopped flat leaf Italian parsley
Combine ingredients tahini through salt to make the sauce. You can put it all in the blender or mix by hand with a whisk.
(Optional) Remove some or all of the cucumber skin in lengthwise strips before spiralizing. I like to remove about half of the skin in lengthwise strips.
Reserve a little parsley to garnish individual servings. Use your hands or a fork mix the sauce, the spiralized cucumbers and the rest of the parsley together.
Garnish with reserved parsley and serve!
